I think I have Writer set properly; it looks to me like my fields should update when I reload the program, but they do not. The F9 key seems to have no effect. Anyone have an idea about what I'm doing wrong? When I go into Tools/Options/Writer/General, it shows automatic updating of links and fields, but it doesn't happen. Thanks in advance.

Date and time fields come in two varieties, Fixed and Variable. The default is Fixed. Right-click on your field and choose Fields on the context menu then choose the option that is not fixed. Then F9 will then update your fields and automatic updating will work.
To insert the variable date field directly here is a link to the relevant help for Inserting a Fixed or Variable Date Field.
