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

Easy – on the report footer insert an empty text box. Inside the text box type =DATE(). If you want this on every page or in a specific spot on your report, do the same thing wherever you want the current date to appear.

Cheers!

Not sure about this because it has been a long time but you might also experiment with the function =NOW() can’t remember what the difference is but I remember preferring one over the other.
