Default how to find the date a document was created

Hi There, I am trying to find out if it is possible to find out when a
document was created in word, I am computer illiterate so an easy explanation
would be very much appreciated.

You can see the file creation date from File Properties Statistics (or
simply from properties of the file itself in Windows Explorer). If you want
to insert this date into the Word document, use a CREATEDATE field.

Note that this is the date the *file* was created - it won't tell you if an
earlier document was pasted in or "saved as".
