> perimeter of the black rectangle.
> 2. From the Window menu, select Show Shape Sheet. The shape
> sheet fills the bottom half of the screen.
> 3. Scroll down the shape sheet until you reach Text Fields.
> 4. Click the string in the Value column of the Text Fields
> section. The current string is displayed in the formula bar
> near the top of the screen: =DOCLASTSAVE()
> 5. Replace the current formula bar string with:
> =DATE(year, month, day)
> ... with date values instead of "year, month, day."
> NOTE: If you type something wrong, like:
> =DATE(2006, 11, 31)
> ... Visio will display this as "12/1/06."
> 6. Press ENTER and close the Shape Sheet.
