<CFINPUT NAME="ListingDate" VALUE="#Evaluate('invest.ListingDate')#" TYPE=text SIZE="20" REQUIRED="no" MESSAGE="Check Input" VALIDATE="date">

The above code is from my update(edit) page. What i am doing is showing in the input field the value from my database.

The problem I am encountering:

The date returned is in this format:
2003-09-17 00:00:00.0

I want to format my variable, to show the date in this format:

MM/DD/YY


in my form, the default returned date returns an error after i submit the form, stating it is not in the correct format VALIDATE="date"

So how can i preformat:
"#Evaluate('invest.ListingDate')#"
