Validating & Using Dates
Posted on 1998-06-25
I'm using an Access database with VB5 to store information on customers requirements for price lists. I'm going to need to use dates fairly heavily in my app.
Is it best to use the masked edit box to process input the date? I have played around with it a little but had problems trying to assign it properly to a control (I'm using unbound controls).
I have toyed with the IsDate function, but that relies on the user entering the slashes for the date (eg - 26/06/98).
Any suggestions as to the best way to enter a date field and use it in the database?
