Revision Date Insert into MS Word

Is there anyway I can add a ''Revision Date'' in a Microsoft Word Document? Currently, you can add an ''Auto Date'' so when I open the document and it will then insert today's date. But, what I want to do is leave the document creation date for the footer *until* I revise the document, and *then* have the 'revision date' show up in the footer. (So, until the change is made, it should just leave the original creation date.)

Since you would be "saving" a change to the document (being a revision), you may want to look into inserting a "Field" named "SaveDate" so it will hold the date the doc was saved.

Position your cursor where you'd like the date to be in your docuemnt, then: Insert > Field... > In Field names, select SaveDate, select a format and click <OK>.

Hope this helps!

From Service Pack 3 with Microsoft office 2007, how do i change my operating system to MS office 2007?


Hi, there!
As I know, MS office is a software to use for office works such as typing document, calculate and basic office database. MS Office software is NOT an operating system. You can not change you operating system to MS Office 2007. I think you meant is: Install Service Pack 3 of Microsoft Office 2007 on your computer. To do so, you first need the Microsoft Office 2007 software on your computer or you need MS Office 2007 disk. The Service Pack 3 of MS Office 2007 is the update only not the actual software to use.

Hope this will help. Thanks for reading.

Auto Correct option is not working in all MS Office Versions

Do this is Microsoft Word:

  • Click the Microsoft Office Button
  • Click Proofing.
  • Click AutoCorrect Options
  • On the AutoCorrect tab, select the Automatically use suggestions from the spelling checker check box.

Hi running word 2003 have an auto fill in the date feature installed on a fax template how do I disable it. if I open up previous documents composed the present date populates yet the document was composed...


This is caused by the document using a "field" and not an actual date. Press <ALT+F9> to see the date's field code. You will probably see: { DATE } or { DATE @ "M/d/yyyy" } (NOTE: The M/d/yyyy formatting may be different for you; since this is personal choice). You can manually delete the field and type in your date. To automate this, open the TEMPLATE (*.DOT) and change the field by using: Insert > Field... and selecting "CreateDate" from the Field names list. Also - set your desired format too and then click <OK>. Save the change to your template and it will use the date you create the fax and keep that date if the fax is saved as a document and reopened in the future.
