Default Change dates on multiple word docs

Hi,



I have inherited multiple (200+) documents that require the dates to be changed on every document.

Is their an easy way to go through each on of the document and have those dates changed?

The date is located in the header of the document, nested inside a table.

A macro could be used to do it but we would need to see some sample docs. Headers can be tricky beasts as there is three per section and if your documents have section breaks, each one introduces another three headers.

If the dates are fields, it could be a whole lot easier.
