I am creating a diary entry document and need to insert a different date on
each page. Is there a way to have the date automatically change each time i
go to a new page in a document?

Heese,
You could do a mail-merge with an excel database consisting of one column
with all your dates.
The only caveat is that Word will create a new section for each date, but
that can easily be overcome with a search and replace, search for section
and replace with manual page end.

Even easier would be to choose a "catalog" (or "directory") type of mail
merge...
