Automatically inserting next year's date in Word

I am creating a template for a report I need to submit every year. There's a part in the report where I need the heading "Professional Goals for 2013." I'd like to have Word automatically enter that year. I've already used a field code in the document heading, like this: "Brief Annual Report,  { SAVEDATE \@ "yyyy" \* MERGEFORMAT } so that, this year, it reads "Brief Annual Report, 2012," next year it will be "Brief Annual Report, 2013," and so on.

Is there any way I can have Word automatically enter the following year, not the current year? Something like "yyyy+1"? I already tried that, and it doesn't work. %^) 

Thank you for sharing any ideas you have!
You need to use an evaluation field (the equals sign at the top of the list of fields in Insert > Field), then insert the date field within it:

  • { = 1 + { DATE \@ "yyyy"} }
  • { = 1 + { SAVEDATE \@ "yyyy" \* MERGEFORMAT } }
  • etc.
