Thank you very much, Dani.
I got the forms working thanks to your code suggestions--that saved me a lot of time spent in trial and error.
Two more Questions:
1) Is there any information or tutorials somewhere describing how to integrate/convert/update DataAssist forms with FormBuilder forms? I could definitely use some basic step-by-step instructions detailing how to accomplish this task.
2) Can the DatePicker be configured to work on search forms to search by date? If so, how?
Thanks again for your help.
