I would like to get the workaround, too. I have this same problem - and it's
so frustrating, because we want the date to be a variable, so when changes
are made it's updated, but NOT change when you just print the doc for
someone. (Then, all my developers are wandering around like baby chicks
squawking about how their dates don't match.)

Subject: Word Save Date Question
I would like to know if any of you have experienced that when printing a
document with a SaveDate field, the field automatically updates.
The above is based on the following test environment:
SaveDate field is in the footer
Word 6.0/Win 95
I would like to hear from your experiences, and if there is a work-around
that I am not aware of.
