I have been trying to add the "Date Completed" in "Advanced Properties" for a Word document.
I have selected "Date" as my "Type," put "1/10/12" and "January 10, 2012," hit "add," and it shows in the "Properties" box.

However, when I close that screen, it still doesn't show up on the right side panel of the document. What am I doing wrong?

@zack Many of your edits are only e.g. formatting and as such too insubstantial. Please read up on what is considered a good edit. For example, you leave in all the "Hello"/"Thank you" which are undesired and should be removed when fixing a post. Multiple (even minor) fixes make up a solid edit. –  Daniel Beck Jan 11 '12 at 8:36

@DanielBeck, the vast majority of my edits are about grammar, and how to properly spell things, and fix proper wording. Remember, one can gladly deny the edit :) –  zackrspv Jan 11 '12 at 8:40

@zackrspv I know, and I do, but I don't like seeing you make the effort only to have your changes rejected. I think editing others' posts on this site is a great service to improve the overall content quality. Therefore the pointer to read up on the topic. –  Daniel Beck Jan 11 '12 at 8:42

@frustr8ted Sorry for hijacking your comment thread here, but as there's no private messaging there's little else we can do. –  Daniel Beck Jan 11 '12 at 8:44
