You can set Date and time either to Update automatically or to Fixed:
- Update automatically pulls the current date from the computer's clock and formats it in whatever format you choose from the drop-down list.

- Fixed prints whatever you enter in the Fixed text box. When Fixed is enabled, it defaults to today's date in the mm/dd/yyyy format.
