Date Field that Updates

 I am working on a file, and I want a date stamp on it, not a plot stamp. Plot stamps do a great job of displaying when a drawing was last plotted. For this project I want to see the date stamp update like a normal field. On Open, Save, Plot, eTransmit, and Regen for sure.



Turns out that Date fields do not update the way all other fields do.


To side step the issue, I used a bit of Diesel code "$(editime,0,MON DD","YYYY -H:MMam/pm)"
The difference is that when I Regen, the Diesel field updates. Thanks ancient CAD technology!
