I want to create a template whereby date on the top left is the date I created the document
and then another date on far right where date changes each time I open/edit it.
how do I do that?

Use a CREATEDATE field for the first date and a DATE field for the second one. See Insert | Quick Parts > Field : Date and Time

thnx i figured it out. at least I think it will work.
tho the cursor goes to begin of date of left side instead of
1 or 2 spaces down where I would begin my entry of data.
is there a way to make cursor set to where I want to begin entry??

Position your insertion point where you want the field to go before you insert it ... Pretty basics, I would have thought.

You cannot. The most you can do - if you're sending printed pages - is to format them as hidden text and make sure Word is configured to not print hidden text.

You can't. Word doesn't support such behaviour. As I said, the best you can do is to format the dates as hidden text, which you can configure Word to display but not print.
