    Make a table that calculates future dates? (Word 2000)

    Hello All

    Back in WordPerfect, I had a table where one column would calculate future dates by simply creating a formula where you would add the additional days out to each cell. Can you do something similar in Word 2000 or 2003? If so, can you tell me how please. Thanks.

    Would the table cells contain anything other than this number?

    Here's a good place to start for formula fields in Word: <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/starpost.gif> Word Field Maths (1.11)

    Date Calculations in Word (2.45) might be useful too.

    Yes, there is additional text in the table. Actually, in WordPerfect, I have this as a template with a user box where the user types in some info on the form and then the starting date in the table. The table "autofills" with the future dates because there is a formula in each cell of the calculating column. I have attached a copy of what the table looks like. I hope it helps. If this cannot be done in Word, there a way to do it in Excel?

    It should be possible to do this using the field codes from Date Calculations in Word (see my previous reply), but it would be easier using an embedded or linked Excel table. See attached version.
