Is there any way I can insert code so that when I open a

When you open the template, both these dates are the same!
Templates are used only to create new documents, so the document
is created at the point that the template is opened.  But I think
I see what you mean.  You want a template containing a date field
such that any document created from that template will, after it
is saved and reopened, show the date that the document was
reopened (and then reopened and reopened) and not initially
created from the template.

As has already been suggested by others, you can do that at
Insert | Fields > | Other... | Document.  Under Type select Date
and under Select select Date - not "Date (fixed)".  One point of
confusion is that at Insert | Fields > you will see a Date entry
- but this is actually the "Date (fixed)" variety, not the
(variable) Date that you need.  So ignore that and proceed to
Other... .

I trust this helps.

Yup, that works.
