Default Recovering Date a Document Was Created

When I inserted a date in my Word 2003 document, I put a check mark in
"Update automatically." Now I need to know when the document was created. Is
that information available somewhere in the document, and can I recover that
creation date?

In Windows Explorer, right-click on it, choose Properties. Depending on your
version of Windows, there will be a date created field somewhere there.

contains a wealth of information I would like to have available while
offline.

But, I could not seem to save it, except in txt form.

Is there some type of block on saving it, or is it just my system?
Opera 9.64 on Win98

Perhaps, a pdf form available?

AFAIK, it's just an ordinary Web page. It does include shared borders, but
you should be able to copy the main portion of the text and paste it into a
Word doc.

I posted the question to the Opera group, too.

ctrl-c the imagery and transferring into .doc using ctrl-v did not
work, either. Might as well done the .txt list

Recent versions of Word can be sticky about pasting images. In my
experience, Word 2003 is just slow (it doesn't actually refuse for me, as
some users experience). And if a simple paste doesn't work, it should be
possible to use Paste Special.

But if I use File | Save As and choose either .mht (Web Archive, single
file) or .htm (Webpage, complete) in Internet Explorer, I get exactly what I
would expect in Word. I do have "Confirm conversion at open" enabled, so I
get a dialog asking me to confirm that the file is a Web page, but it then
opens with all content present and accounted for.

I changed from MS Internet Explorer *to* Opera because IE was not
reliably saving website pages. Either after a very long delay I would
get "error saving page" and IE would abort, or worse, IE saved
something, but large sections of blank were in it! So I changed to
Opera and have not had another problem until now with every website
page I save. This is the FIRST website that Opera has not been able
to save as a *.mht single archive.

It does save as .htm with a "files" folder, but then Opera doesn't
open that. I guess I could save as .txt, and keep the images in the
file folder for reference and 'put it all together' myself..

The clue something was wrong appeared in the 'suggested' title for
saving the web page. Usually, the suggested title ends with .mht, but
not this time. There was no extension for it.

I did get a confirmation from the Opera forum that someone there
trying to answer my question had saved it as .mht and had no problem,
so you got me what's going on.


Change of subject: Any idea as to how to do smooth scrolling on the
horizontal bar?

Well, I haven't tried opening the Web pages in a browser, just in Word.

Opera 9.64 saved the website as a .htm with the attending file
folder. Opera won't open that .htm file, but IE6 opened very nicely!

Beats me what's going on. If I find out, will let you know.

I think I'll simply view the website, Print Screen, piece it
altogether uring Paint, and then save that as a .jpg using Irfan,
that'll work. just takes some time.
