Microsoft Word CREATEDATE field not correct time zone - Last Modified 2012-07-03 19:19 UTC - Created 2012-07-03 19:19 UTC

When a document that contains a CREATEDATE (or DOCPROPERTY CreateTime) is opened on another machine with a different local time zone setting the information in the field is not populated with the correct time. Word has a bug which simply doesn't update the CREATEDATE after the first time it is populated. It will only be correct if you "Update Field" then it will update to the correct local time.
