Auto Enter Date
I am wondering what the calculation is to make a field auto populate todays date?
there are two ways:
1) use the option of auto-enter the creation date or the modification date
2) use the option of auto-enter a calculation and calc: Get ( CurrentDate )
Generally speaking, if you want to see always the current date into a field, it is better to define an UNSTORED calculation field ( result date ) with the calc above.
