There is a command to insert date/time in a LibreOffice Writer text?

Thank you in advance.

In the English version follow the menu's:
Insert / Fields / Date
Insert / Fields / Time
      In addition to this, you can right click either the date or time 
that you have created. Select "Fields" to open the Edit Fields dialog. 
At the bottom of the Format list, select "Additional formats". This 
opens the Number Format dialog. Look through the Format list to find the 
timestamp format. It also has a Format code box in which you can specify 
the specific code you want to use.


This is LO 4.0, so it may not have the elements you are talking about.  I 
used "help" and repeatedly did everything it said to insert the date.   
The default date acceptance pattern seems to have been M/D/Y/;M/D but that 
didn't work, so I changed it to MMMM/NNNN/YYYY, since I want the day, month, 
day of the week, and year to display and that doesn't work either.  It comes 
up "Date (fixed)" no matter what.  
I only downloaded and installed "writer" since that is the only part of LO I 
will be using.  Do I need to have installed one of the other sections as 
well? or something else? thanks in advance.
