Updating "Shortcuts to insert current date and time into MS Word 2010"

I found something wrong in my previous post.

In fact, my original intention is to insert a quick time stamp while I am editing MS Word documents. However, "Alt-Shift-T/Alt-Shift-D" method inserts a dynamic time stamp: the inserted object is in fact a variable, and get updated every time I save that document.

That is, when I save the Word document, all such time stamps become exactly the time I save the file. Of course, this is not very desirable to me.

I researched again in Google, and found this page.
Insert The Current Date to Word – Statically, Not as an Updating field | ProductiveWise

The keyboard shortcut for inserting the current date into a Word Document is ALT+SHIFT+D. The problem is that the inserted date is a live filed, so it is being updated every time you open the document.

To insert the current date without it ever being updated (that is, to insert the current date as simple text) – press CTRL+SHIFT+F9 when the cursor is inside the added field.


Use "Alt-Shift-T, then Left Arrow, then "Ctrl-Shift-F9", to insert a time stamp about time.
Use "Alt-Shift-D, then Left Arrow, then "Ctrl-Shift-F9", to insert a time stamp about date.

(Quite ugly to me! Can anyone teach me shorter ways to insert such static time stamps in MS Word? I really appreciate that!)

1. Believe in yourself when no one else does.
Lin’s only the 4th graduate from Harvard to make it to the NBA. He’s also one of only a handful of Asian-Americans to make it. He was sent by the Knicks to play for their D-League team 3 weeks ago in Erie, PA. He’d already been cut by two other NBA teams before joining the Knicks this year. You’ve got to believe in yourself, even when no one else does.

HA and DR Licensing of Cisco Prime LMS 4.1

Single license of LMS is OK for HA and DR! I did not notice this!
Licensing Information

In a high availability or a geographic redundancy option, the LMS is active on only one server at any given point in time. Hence only a single license of LMS needs to be procured to be shared between the two servers (Primary and Secondary servers) running in Active-Standby mode respectively.

Licensing of Cisco Security Manager 4.2

For these two reasons, I believe most enterprises should start from "Standard-25" (Standard version 25 devices) or better versions:

  1. Standard-to-Professional upgrade license can only be applied on "Standard-25".
  2. 90-day Evaluation License: this is for Professional version only.
