Default auto-dating dates in tables

The reason is that you have inserted a date field which shows the system
date. What you need to do is change those date fields for createdate
fields - ALT+F9 change {DATE \@ "d MMM yyyy"}or {TIME \@ "d MMM yyyy"} to
{CREATEDATE \@ "d MMM yyyy"} then F9 and ALT+F9 - and change the date in
your template so that future letters based on it show the correct dates. The
switches \@ "d MMM yyyy" may be different at your location.

Hi, I have a table set up for my invoices. Whenever I close an
invoice and reopen it on a later date, that day's date appears in the
table. How do I set it so that the date does not update
automatically? I want it to keep the date that I typed in originally.
