The date / time feature is a display function, only, but does not imprint data on the image file. In order to include this information, an image file must first be imported to the computer. Image-editing software (such as Adobe PhotoShop) must then be used to create data characters.

You have the option to see the date and time when when the camera is in "Playback" mode, which allows you to preview your images on the screen. When looking at your pictures, use the "Disp/Back" button to include text with your pictures. The date and time will appear along the bottom of the image.

Printing the Date on Pictures

Cannot get date to print on .jpeg images when downloaded

The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every photo in its EXIF metadata. If you want the date printed on your photos then please refer to the documentation for whatever program you're using to print. Depending on the program and printer you may have the option of printing the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

The date doesn't appear on photo when printed.

By default Olympus cameras do not print the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.

Cannot get date appeared on pictures.

The date doesn't actually appear on the image. It's embedded in the data. You can see the date/time stamp by right-clicking on the image and selecting properties. You should see the date taken, date modified, etc..
