Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It’s possible in Microsoft Word 2007….. just follow my steps…..

  1. Click where you want to insert the date or time.
  2. On the Insert menu, click Date and Time. It will show you multiple format of date and time. Just you choose any format.
  3. Select option “update automatically” in check box…

To insert the date and time as a field that’s automatically updated when you open or print the document, select the Update automatically check box.

    Sorry, may be I am wrong, though I am using Word 2003, but never heard of autofill that option associated with MS Word. As far as my knowledge, MS always maintain the basics of operation on MS Office. It is found in MS Excel. Most probably u indicated the "AutoText" which is still in 2007, and if u meant, AutoComplete that is no longer available except for dates. May be I am not sure, but u can check from ur end.

    The insert date works in all version of MS Word from Office 97 through Office 2010.  Be aware though, it can and will be seen as a Macro in documents and it can be stripped out or broken when the document is scanned for viruses.  It also can be stripped out when the document is uploaded to something else.  It is nice though to have the current date in your document.

    I need to create a Word document that contains a table where the date column is automatically populated with the current date  when a new line is added to the table.
