When you create a document you may sometimes need to insert/put a date or time or both. You can insert quickly in Microsoft word 2003 by choosing the insert menu, select Date and Time option and then choose one of the many date and time formats.

When you insert the date or time, you can insert it as text or as a field by clicking the checkbox labeled Update automatically. When the date is entered as a field, it will be updated each time you open or print the document to display the current date or time.  This is particularly useful for templates which are used regularly but at different dates and time.

For Microsoft Word 2007 select insert menu option then select Header of your choice. Some headers templates allow you to select Date only but you can put the time anywhere by selecting a blank location below the title.

To put the date just click on the calendar and the time icon on the header toolbar. The date and time are usually placed on the top most right hand side of a document. There are many Date and Time formats to select and they can automatically be update if you select the checkbox.
