I have multiple word documents that have a date field code displaying the current date. I need a way to modify each document so that it shows the CreateDate field instead of Date.

The format for each field is currently DATE \@ "dd MMMM yyyy" on each of the documents, but I would like it changed to CREATEDATE \@ "dd MMMM yyyy".

Is there anyway I can automate this for multiple documents, instead of having to go into each one separately?

If it helps, there is only 1 date field in all of the documents and they are in .doc format

In the past, I have used the VBA Find & Replace add-in to update multiple documents. The claim is;

VBA Find and Replace© provides a method for finding and replacing text anywhere in a document

You will have to investigate whether the "anywhere" includes field codes.
