About a year to a year and a half ago the question was asked on this 
list about when a date is filled in automatically, how it can be 
saved as the date that the file is saved, and the file will open 
automatically with the saved date instead of the current date the 
next time it is opened.

Go to 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.

This gives a date and or time that updates everytime the file is opened, not
only when edited which it appears is what the poster was looking for.
