Date Symbols and Variables in a field


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.  




thanks so much.
