    Is it possible to insert a date that auto-updates in the iPad version of Word?

    I don't see that option in Word.

    In Excel I used &date for the footer but that doesn't seem to work in Word.

    Pity. I use it all the time in the desktop version of Word.

    Even editing it online (from onedrive.live.com) doesn't give you the ability to insert a date field. The date field I have added from the desktop client remains so it sees it, you just cannot edit it.
