    SAVEDATE

    Word 2000 SR-1
    After poking around for a while in Help, I found SaveDate. The example it gives is:
    ---
    Document last changed: { SAVEDATE @ "d MMMM yyyy 'at' HHmm 'hours' " }
    ---
    When I paste this into my header, it just sits there - no date formatting happens, and Print Preview shows exactly that example text.
    Thanks for any help.

    The curved brackes are the field enclosures, and should not be copied. If you key Ctrl+F9, and then paste what's between the curved braces, you should see what you're looking for.

    Thanks for your quick help.

    fwiw, that's the danger of using acronymns in posts (imho)
