Get curent date problem

I'm trying to fathom out a very simple function within Filemaker12, but Im struggling.


I have customer DOB field, get current date field and a field that calculates the customer age.


The issue is that the 'get current date' field isn't functioning. It doesn't seem to be picking up anything. I've tried creating a new database with a 'get current date' field which doesn't populate automatically, but I've found a way of getting it to show a date. The issue is that is doesn't show the current date, it picks up a system date from many years ago.


I'm far from an expert and acknowledge that I'm probably making some simple rookie errors.


Can anyone offer some help, or advice please?
