1. Summon the Field dialog box.
Directions are found earlier in this chapter.
2. Select Date and Time from the Categories drop-down list.
3. Select PrintDate from the Field Names list.
4. Choose a date-and-time format from the Field Properties area.
5. Click OK.
The field looks gross until you print the document, which makes sense.

date the thing was printed. PrintDate works well for that purpose; the other fields in the Date and
Time category are updated only when you manually refresh them.
