Excel has a quick key stroke that adds todays date (Ctrl + , does outlook have something similar? Is there a way to design this in Macros or v basic?
Please provide specifics.

I used this information and it was helpful. When in "design this form" I
complete the work as instructed and "run the form". Everything work great,
the date and time are inserted in the note field. However, when I save the
form and open it, the date stamp does not work. Any ideas? Also, is there a
way to modify the code so only the date shows? (no time)
thanks

You need to publish the form. See http://www.outlookcode.com/d/formpub.htm

The FormatDateTime() function governs how the date/time appears. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8aebkz6s.aspx

Sue, This worked. I published the form and the date stamp button works.
thanks
On the other issue, I visited the site you suggested and I don't know what
to do with the code that is there. Do I insert it in with the code in my
form? Do I replace the code in my form with one of the lines of code? Not
sure what to do.

Look at the code in the form that gets the date/time value. The page I suggested explains how the FormatDateTime function works and even provides a very simple example on how to use it to return a string with a date/time value in a particular format. But since you seem to need another example, you could replace Date with FormatDateTime(Date, vbShortDate).

Sue, One more thing came up. When I published the revised form, with the
date stamp it worked ok on my local folders, but the button did not work on
shared folders. Do I need to publish the form to the shared users "Mail box"
too? Thanks
