Thanks, but that gets me back to the original quandary, which is that PowerPoint doesn't offer the date format we're looking for as an option.

I just tried creating in Word and then Pasting Special in PowerPoint. I did it as a link, hoping it would update, but no such luck. (I saved, closed, and reopened the Word doc on a different date--changed my system calendar--and the Word doc updated. Then I reopened the PPT, but it still had the previous date.)

So, still no luck.
