This sounds like you need to untick the "Auto Update This Field" option in the Fields and Variables dialog. This gives you the following code:
<h3 class="LastUpdated"><span class="Bold">Last Updated:</span> <?rh-variable_start
name="date" format="MM/dd/yyyy" value="40758.715347" constant="TRUE" ?>08/04/2011<?rh-variable_end ?>

I found the Auto Update This Field options to untick the option, but I can't test as every topic has today's date which obviously updated when I opened the project. I'm also assuming that I will have to untick the option in each topic, or globally replace the code (not sure if that will work).
My hope is to have the project show Last Updated field with a date (ie 8/4/11) and then when I open the project, update a topic that topic date will change to the current date or the date of the last change (ie 8/5/11).
Do you know if I have to manually untick the option in a topic by topic bases, or can I globally replace the HTML code?
Hello there and welcome to our community
You could likely accomplish it using a good find and replace utility such as FAR.
The main difference is that the option adds constant="TRUE" to the mix.
So you could search for:
and replace with:
value="40758.309850" constant="TRUE" ?
