fixed system date

Posted by Bill on June 21, 2001 10:56 AM

I need to find a way to grab the system date into a cell at the time an adjacent cell has a value entered. The problem with any of my attempts is that this date is volatile, and it needs to be a fixed - text would do OK.
I can do it manually with "Ctrl+;" at the cursor, but it needs to happen automatically.
Any ideas?
