Templates & dates ACT 6

For years this has bedeviled me.


When I set up a template in my ACT 6 I have the choice of create,edit,letter & merge date fields.  NONE of these when applied create todays date when the template is opened.  THIS IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!


What am I doing wrong???

The date you want needs to be a Word supplied date, not a database field. Try looking at one of the standard templates.
