Date in creo parametric

Date in creo parametric

Date in creo parametric

(OP)
Hi,
I have seen some discussions about &todays_date and I know that it inserts a string with the actual date and doesn't update.
Is there any way to use a parameter that update the date each time that I open the model or drawing file?
thanks.

RE: Date in creo parametric

@danielrendon123: I do not have an easy way to test this out right now, but you might try defining a parameter using a relation. Since relations are re-calculated each time a model/drawing is regenerated, that should updated the date as well. Something as simple as: LAST_OPEN = &TODAYS_DATE, then call &LAST_OPEN as the parameter to use should (and, as with any PTC product, I stress again should) work.
