Hello Ahmed,

As far as I know there is no Constant in Reports to output printdate. All the available Constants of fields you can find in ARIS Script Help, they start with "FIELD_".

Nevertheless, if you have enough enthusiasm and you really need this field, you can try workaround solution http://www.ariscommunity.com/users/billie1989/2017-10-09-wdxlibrary-docx-output. It's much more difficult, but it allows to use all the MS Word formatting (including any fields). If you start new report it's simple enough, but if you want to add one line in standard report I wouldn't recommend to use this workaround. It will take a lot of time to change all the outputs to new format.

BR, Nikita
