Default canceling auto date update


I use excel to create invoices. When I open up old invoices, the
original date changes to today's date. How do I stop this auto update
function?

Thanks.

Hi
The cell where the date appears probably has the formula =TODAY() or
=NOW() which automatically recalculate when the sheet is opened.
Delete the formula and replace it with the date you require, then save.
When creating new invoices, typing Ctrl +; (Control plus the semicolon
key) will enter today's date into a cell for you.
