Re: Update data "Today"

Please check the Help for the default timer mode argument:

today([timer_mode] )

Returns the current date from the system clock. The timer_mode may have the following values:

0 Date at script run
1 Date at function call
2 Date when the document was opened  

Default timer_mode is 2. The timer_mode = 1 should be used with caution, since it polls the operating system every second and hence could slow down the system.

So, if you are using timer_mode 2 (default), it is indeed only updated when you open the document.
