    Date Fields (Word 97)

    I want to create a date field which shows the create date plus 8 days

    ie if the document was done today the date would show as 3 May 2007

    I have had a look at Macropods document dated 23 March but am afraid I dont really understand what I need to do

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Re: Date Fields (Word 97)

    I have attached the relevant part of Macropod's document, with the current date replaced by the create date, and the "delay" set to 8 days. Press Alt+F9 to see the field codes, and Alt+F9 to hide them again. To update the field after copying to another document, select it and press F9.

    Press Alt+F9 to see the field codes.
    Near the end of the field, you'll see
    <code>
    @ "dddd, d MMMM yyyy"
    </code>
    This is the switch that detemines the display format. The dddd part results in the name of the day. Change it to
    <code>
    @ "d MMMM yyyy"
    </code>
    Then press Alt+F9 to hide the field codes and F9 to update the field.
