Insert dynamic date field in mail merge


This seems like a basic question but I can't seem to figure out how to do it. I want to insert a "date" field into my mail merged letter at the top. I can't find any field for date in Word 2007. I want this field to update automatically according to the current date.

Best Solution

  1. On the Ribbon, click the Insert tab.
  2. Click Date and Time (part of the Text group).
  3. From the Date and Time dialog box, select the date format desired.
  4. Click the Update automatically check box.
  5. Click OK.
