Automatically show current date on opening app.

I want a field ("Today's Date") to show the current date every time I boot up my computer and open my database in FM15.

Why should such a simple operation cause so much a problem?

I have tried several options from specifying "Get current date" to "Get currentHostTimestamp" in various options/scripts.

I can get the date to appear when I click the "Today's Date" field BUT the following day, it is still showing the same date!! (unless I select that field again!!)

All I want is the field to automatically show the currect date when I open the application!!

Maybe someone could tell me where I am going wrong please which seems to me to be a simple operation. Thanks.
