MS Word Doc >> Today plus one day

Hi there. Using W02 on XP. I have inserted a date field that gives me


How can I add one day? My form is being completed at the end of the work
day for tomorrow's details. Just want to default the field to 'tomorrow'.
I've added a +1 but can't place it correctly.

Thanks in advance for any and all help or advice.

MS Word Doc >> Today plus one day First, use the CreateDate field as the basis for your calculation, not the
Date field. http://addbalance.com/datefields1.htm explains the different
kinds of date fields. Date field calculation is more complex than you might
imagine, but it can be done. See http://addbalance.com/word/datefields2.htm
for information on the different kinds of ways to make a date calculation
work. It includes links to pages with fields and an explanation of different
macros that can be used instead of fields.

MS Word Doc >> Today plus one day Thanks Charles, you've been very helpful to me more than once today. Didn't
think Word would be so different from Access and Excel in this regard.
