Date field in letter/email template

I am a new ACT user, and have created a new template for confirmation letters to be sent regarding hotel reservations.  I want the "sent" date to be on the letter.  When I use "create date" or "letter date" field in the template, the date comes up as a week ago.  What can I do to fix this?  I have spent several hours trying to fix this, to no avail.

Re: Date field in letter/email template

Try using the ACT Field LAST EDIT DATE.  This field will update automatically when you initiate the mail merge and insert today's date.


Also, you could insert the current date from within word, Insert, Date and Time and choose the option to "Update Automatically"
