    Is there anyway I can alter the date a Word document was created?

    Very low tech, but you could change the date in Windows control panel and then save the document

    Yeah as above - change the system time/date. Copy and paste the contents of your original into a new document and save it.

    Not sure if you just save the original if it will just amend the modified date and not the created.

    I've had to do this before, very cheeky.
