Microsoft word stop date updating

You can easily add the current date and time to your Word documents, but what if you only want to add the month or month and year, but no date?

It’s easy to manually add a custom date field and we’ll show you how.

You must use Ctrl F9 to insert the braces and NOT just type the braces using the keyboard.

The field code above inserts the full month and year.

However, you can format the month and year differently by changing the switches.

To do this, click the Properties button and select Show Document Panel from the drop-down menu.

In newer versions of Word, the document panel has been removed, so you can only view advanced properties. From this panel, you can also access a dialog box displaying all the properties stored for the document.

Regardless of the version of Microsoft Office Suite that is installed on your computer, it's important to keep your suite up to date.
