Description Frans 2014-02-13 14:20:58 UTC
OS = Window7 - Home Premium SP1 (32 and 64 bits);    MS-Office 2010; 
LibreOffice  (Build ID: 1c1366bba2ba2b554cd2ca4d87c06da81c05d24).

As I’m updating various documents frequently, saving with a version number in the document name isn’t enough to recognize differences in printed pages.  Therefor I use the SAVEDATE field of MS-Word in the header.  When now migrating to LO the doc name and date are reproduced, but the time stamp changes into  “H:02”.  
Correcting the timestamp in LO and saving the document in the ODT-environment works perfect, including correct information in the header when printing.
But….. as I must share most of the documents with other people, I need to save some documents after updating in DOC or DOCX format. 
=  Saving as MS-2003-DOC gives in my header an old doc name and not updated date and time.
=  Saving as MS-2007/2010-DOCX shows in the header old doc name and wrong time.
=  Saving as Office Open XML-DOCX shows old doc name and date and time as zero.  

Is there a fix planned to make sure the actual document name, date and time of the last changes could be saved just in the old MS-DOC format?

I confirm the "HH:02" in header.

Well the HH:02 is in the header in Word 2010, so I don't get the point of this report.
Please provide a document, where the timestamp is working in MS Word!
