The server side validation for the date is just to ensure the user enters it in a particular fashion, you can use this and a validation show if to display a message to the user to indicate the format the date must be entered.
Like Brad mentioned I think spry also has this type of validation.
Eric or Jason:
Not sure how to ask or handle this question.
When someone fills out the following page resumes_Insert.php page they don't have to fill in all "Work Experience" date from and to data.
Please see: resumes_Results.php you can see that the WorkExperience2DateFrom and WorkExperience2DateTo: by default is showing a date of 12/31/1969. How do I get it to display NULL or N/A if the field is left blank??
