    Damn... I need to do something about the date. :( In the US, we read dates with the month first (MM DD YYYY). Everywhere else in the world they read it with the day first (DD MM YYYY). Man, we're so bad as that we do everything differently. :o

    The date has to be between Nov 14 and Dec 14.

    Or maybe that's just the field values you submitted?

    Don't allow them to manually enter the date. Have a little calendar icon that they can click which pops up a graphical calendar. Then they can select the day graphically.

    Yeah, that, or just explicitly show them how to format the date... If you want a quick and easy workaround.



    But the calendar icon would be way cooler. :cool:

    Isn't there some way to have it follow the system settings for date format?

    Actually a lot of places use YYYY MM DD which makes much more sense if you want put it into a string (YYYYMMDD) and put them in order (I use this naming convention all the time). But I too thought that it didn't matter in VB unless you actually start importing/exporting data - then you need to vigliant on how you format the data.
