How to calculate a field in Word

New Contributor

I have a Word template that I use to upload Word documents to a Sharepoint list. The document has a Document Control section at the top. User enters the Effective date and  Revision Schedule which is a dropdown "Annual", "Every x years", there is a ReviewDate field as well which is not part of the Document Control section. How, if possible, can I enter a formula for the ReviewDate to calculate it based on Revision Schedule...ie If Revision Schedule is "Annual" then ReviewDate = EffectiveDate + 12 ..

While date calculations are possible in Word, they are very convoluted (in most cases). See https://gmayor.com/insert_a_date_other_than_today.htm.

Thanks Stefan!
