    How to freeze a field's value after opening the form


      I have a form that captures the date/time that it was opened when the user fills it out. After filling it out, the user submits it for approval via email. I need the original date & time to be retained on the form, but currently the form is set up so that the field automatically updates upon opening. So the date/time that autofills when the user opens the form is different from the date/time that shows up when the approver opens it up. How do I make it so that the date/time field freezes and retains the date/time right after the user first opens it?
