Printing the current date in page footer - Access 2010

Printing the current date in page footer - Access 2010

I have just converted an Access 2000 database to Access 2010. The reports all had the current date printed in the page footer (=Date()). The 2010 version prompts me for "Date" and then prints "#Name?" in its place. If I delete the date field from the page footer and try to insert "Date and Time" from "Header/Footer" it places the date/time in the report header and still prompts me for a date, then prints "#Name?" in the report header. How do I get the current date to print in the page footer?

Have you attempted compile your code? It seems you might have a missing reference.
