Inserting the Date into the Document Footer
If you're working on a draft of a document and printing versions as you go, it can be helpful to have the date that the document was printed placed into the footer. This way, you can easily compare two documents to see which is more current.

To insert the date of a document into the footer, first go to View, Header And Footer. Scroll down your document and click in the footer. On the Header And Footer toolbar, you'll see an icon that looks like pages of a daily calendar; as you roll the cursor over it, you'll see that it is labeled Insert Date. Click this button to insert the date into the footer of your document.
