Is it possible to have the date automatically entered?

Question

We have a data page that searches and displays employee information. We would like to have the date each record is created displayed on the results page so we can know how old the entry is. I added a date field to the table and added it to the data page but it is not automatically generating the date. Is there a way to do this?

In the Web form design wizard, go to the \"Web Form Wizard - Configure Fields\" page. (be sure that you have previously selected the \"date\" field in your table as one of the fields you want to include in your form).

In the lefthand pane, select the date field, and then change the \"Form element\" value to \"TimeStamp\". By default, this field will no longer appear in your user form, but the timestamp will be posted to your table.

Note: if you don't see the \"TimeStamp\" option in the \"Form element\" list, you may need to start over and edit your datapage with the option \"Enable Advanced Parameters\" selected on the first screen.

Hope this helps.

That is helpful and works well for the Web form. However, one of the forms we use to update the data is set up as a search and report form and we edit the data through the details link. Is there any way to add the timestamp to that form? Timestamp is not a form element option there, even with advanced options and parameters enabled.

Thanks,
