I have struggled with this and I can't see what I am doing wrong, I try not to keep asking questions until I have put a lot of effort into it but this one is escaping me I am afraid.
I partly post so that some of you can see the problems a beginner might get. I am sure the answer is blindingly obvious to some of you. The Variable is in my Variables in preferences with the string of numbers shown in the right hand panel. I assume the string of numbers is a system way of recording time? But it won't render in a readable date. I tried it on another file initially and at least I understand what that arrow at the bottom of the box means now.
This is for learing how to use variables. For when I really need it you might say.
