Mixed Field

{ CREATEDATE [ \@ “format“] [\* MERGEFORMAT]}

Inserts the current date and time in the mail merge document. The format parameter is optional. The \* MERGEFORMAT switch retains formatting applied to the field.

If you omit the format parameter, default formatting is applied. Default formatting is “M/d/yyyy”. If you set the FieldOptions.UseCurrentCultureDateTimeFormat option to true, the system’s Date and Time settings will be used by default.
