Question Inserting “date & time” for the year (YYYY) only,

Inserting “date & time” for the year (YYYY) only,



I couldn’t figure out how can I insert a “date & time” that contains year only (YYYY) like 2014 (attached).

I’m not sure if this can by managed if the date is inserted from fields (attached). But in this case, the date will never be updated automatically but needs to click “update field” option.

Thank you

Best

Jamal

You could just specify a 'YYYY' format... You're not compelled to use one of those offered.

Perhaps the simplest way is to ignore the dialogues. Instead:
• Press Ctrl-F9 to create a pair of field braces (i.e. { })
• Between the field braces, type 'SAVEDATE \@ YYYY', so you get {SAVEDATE \@ YYYY}
• Press F9 to update the field.
Note that I've suggested using a SAVEDATE field. That's so the field only updates whenever the document been (re-)saved, instead of updating just because you open it. Other possibilities include DATE, CREATEDATE and PRINTDATE. The CREATEDATE field records when the document was created, or last saved via Save As.
