I created a meeting request form for Outlook 2003. I have a dropdown control(?) called DatePicker that is a calendar for inputing a date.

For some reason a date (10-29-07) is showing in the box. Would like this to be blank. I can change the date, email form to me, open. The selected date is replaced with the date of 10-29-07

Are you saving the selected date in a property?  The content of a control is lost as soon as the form is closed.  Controls are only used to present data.  They do not store data.  Any data you want to save has to be stored in a form property.
