I have a 400 page price list with a date on each page.  Is it possible to globally change the date automatically?

If the field name is identical on all 400 pages, then changing the date in one field changes it in all fields that have the same name.

Hello and thank you for replying.

I take a document created in excel, save it as a pdf. Open it in acrobat and select edit pdf. All of the text are now surrounded in a box but I'm not sure about field name?

Any thoughts?

This is just static text, and there's no way to globally change it. Do it in Excel before creating the PDF file.
