    Hi guys

    Can you please tell me or show me the code or anything like that that i can use to insert date automatically into word document with just one click or something faster than typing.

    This is a document where i have to prepare for my boss every week, it's a schedule for him of what to do every week.

    thanks in advance

    Alt - Shift - D (all at once)?

    You can create the date in the header, and save it as a .dot file

    Everytime the boss wants the file, just open the .dot file, and it will create a doc file with the date.

    Thanks for your prompt reply, but what i really want is 5 days a time, i have to do five days a time that means like Monday,....Friday(with a date), and i want to insert the date and it should increase by 1 to 5 by itself if i just insert a line of code or something like that.

    Anyone knows?

    Use Excel, not Word?

    Insert one date, drag the cell down and it increments.

    I think in word you can ... like insert field codes with date funtion in it but how can you increment the date one by one?

    I don't know how to make it work in Excel, i tried but it didn't increment.

    Thanks

    To increment a single date in Excel, hold down CTRL while dragging.
