Showing the Last Saved Date of a Word Document

There are things that are handy in Word that we can get to display automatically in the body text of a document, header and/or footer like the current date, page number, author, file location etc.

This week I was asked how to display the date of when the file was last saved. As it happens there is a field for this called SaveDate. So it doesn’t update to the current date or date when it was opened but just the date when it was saved.

Here is how you can do that in this video.
