Inserting the Date and Time into Microsoft Word

Undoubtedly, the time will arise when you need to insert the current date or time in your Microsoft Word document. This may be in the introduction of a letter or in a header or footer. Word allows you to quickly insert the date or time in several different formats. This information is inserted as a field which can be updated manually or is updated automatically when you print the document.

1. Position the insertion point where you want the date or time inserted.

2. Display the Insert tab of the ribbon.

3. Click Date & Time in the Text group. Word displays the Date and Time dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
