Q: We have documents that need a notary stamp with the date formatted as below:

This 30th day of January, 2004.

Is there a way within word to accomplish this automatically using the computer date? Perhaps using the Microsoft Equation?

Assistance would be greatly appreciated. Current work around has this being accomplished by linking to a excel sheet formatted the way we need it.
 

A:
There's a Microsoft Knowledgebase article on how to do that here:

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=212689

But there's another way to do this, which might better suit your needs. This one uses the CREATEDATE form field and doesn't require any VBA to work. I'm assuming you know how to enter a form field (CTRL+F to create the curly brackets, then type inbetween them.) Here is the structure:

This { CREATEDATE \@ "d" \*ordinal} day of { CREATEDATE \@ "MMMM"}, { CREATEDATE \@ "yyyy" }
