Hi,

I try and dipslay date as a header on the top of my page. It needs to be in the format YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS.

I use expression =FormatDateTime(NOW(),'%Y%m%d_%H%i%s')

but recieve error
The Value expression for the textrun ‘ID3.Paragraphs[0].TextRuns[0]’ contains an error: [BC30201] Expression expected.

If i use =FormatDateTime(NOW()) the date displays but not in the correct format.

Can someone please help where im going wrong in the date format expression

Thanks
Ciaran
