Set today's date as calender's default date


I know that there are many existing threads on this topic. But I tried implementing the solution none of them are working.

1) write a trigget "onopen "

I did this. 

i the select field i wrote "Calender"

in the search string I wrote

"='d' & date(today())"

it didn't work

2) tried setting a value of a variabel to the calender and the value of the variable is set to today(sys date)


sub SetDate

ActiveDocument.Fields("Ship Confirmed Date").Select today
end sub

I wrote a macro as above. It is sytacttically correct.

But doesn't pull the date.

Please let me know if theres mistake in any of these approches.

Really appriciate your help.
