Date Field
  Posted by  Jean Autery  on Sunday, June 04, 2006 at 12:28:56 AM (EST)
BUG? It would be to have a normal, usable STATIC Date/Time stamp, but I tried the "Date Field" anyway to see if I could use it. Apparantly, it's a dynamic deal that doesn't interest me ... at all. But, I did noticed that in the evening (Mountain Time), the date was wrong anyway ... the field was tomorrow. Is this bug, or what? I guess there may a use for a dynamic Date Field that changes with the date in a document, but I sure don't know why a normal user would want one ... especially if it's for tomorrow. A dynamic time stamp (current system time) is certainly a mystery to me.

That field uses the date/time provided by your computer. Make sure your computer date/time is set correctly and to the appropriate time zone.

Thanks for the response Robert, but my time zone is correct ... Mountain Time and automatically corrected hourly by the Atomic Clock in Colorado Springs. I've tested this problem on 4.1 and 4.2 and on three computers. If you insert a Date Field in a document at 9am, the date is correct (ie 6/9/06). After 6pm (or before), the date is updated to tomorrow (ie 6/10/06). Basically, a bug. And again, a static, usable and sensible Date / Time stamp would be a nice feature.
