Drawing Date

Hi All,

I'd like to automatically print today's date on my drawings. In previous versions of Solidworks, I accomplished this with the Footer in the Print Options. SW2008 doesn't save this information per drawing any longer.

If I can create a tag in my Sheet Template similar to $PRPSHEET:{Description} which inserts today's date, then I'll have my drawings dated when I print/pdf them. I find this works best for us as opposed to Rev numbers, etc. Is there such a tag? Something like $PRPFILE:{Date} perhaps?

Many thanks,
