Date Symbols and Variables in a field

Post

Hello, I'm new to Filemaker Pro.  I'm using version 8.0.

 

I know that if I add the Date Symbol "//" to the layout, it will give me the current date (a variable) every time I check a record.

 

How do I use that for a field or calculation?

 

For example - I'm trying to keep track of a product, and want to know how long it takes to get a response.   I need a variable date (today's date) - the static date.  

 

Anyone?

 

thanks so much.

 

-G.
