Fantastic!!!! I'll use this over and over and over! Thank you so much! I did notice that when I update the records using the update page I created with webassist that it does want to put the 11/30/-0001 back in the blank date record. Then when the record displays in the detail page it comes back with 12/31/1969. Is there a way to solve this too? I hope I'm not being too greedy with your advice!
Also... how can I set the MySql database to accept Nulls in the date area? You're right... that would be simpler.
