You can put a field in the header, that will update when you print (assuming
in Tools | Options, Print, you checked the box to "update fields" on
printing).

What do you want the date to be? That day? (use a regular Date field) Last
Saved? (use a SaveDate field)

I have inserted a Field code in the Header of the Word document, and it
works but User has to open document different days and do a print everyday.
They wish to limit their time in doing this.

However the situation is as such.

User has about 15 documents to print, and wants to print these documents in
advance, having future dates on them. Is there a quick macro that can be
setup to print these documents, which will have future dates?? With as
little steps for the User to perform.......

I would use a modification of the technique in the article "Sequentially
numbering multiple copies of single document using
a macro" at:

http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/MacrosVBA/...piesOf1Doc.htm

so that it makes use of the DateAdd() function to create the dates, probably
setting a Document Variable to the date and having it displayed by use of a
DOCVARIABLE field.

Hope this helps.
