Edit from my last post
Just type '//' on your layout and it will display the date from the system calendar.
When I do that I get '//' displayed.
It shouldn't if this is layout text and you are in browse, find or preview modes. (Don't enter this into a field).
I've used // many times. You just click the T text tool then click where you want this text and enter the // without any spaces in between them.
You can also use Insert Current Date from the Insert menu to enter the same characters into your layout.
Thank you. I wasn't going back to browse mode. It's been over 10 years since I've done anything like this software. My 'rememberer' doesn't work as well as my 'forgeter".
Thanks again, Jeff
