DATE

Non-MailMerge field

{ DATE [ @ "format" [* MERGEFORMAT]] }

Inserts the current date and time. The optional format parameter specifies the date format string other than the default system. The * MERGEFORMAT switch retains formatting applied to the field.

If you omit the format parameter, default formatting is applied. The default format 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.
