Hi Experts,

I  have a text box where a user can insert a date.

I have validation using the isDate() function to check it's a date.

However, if I insert a date like '02/15' (without the year) I would like it to automatically convert it to the correct format (MM/DD/YYYY) so that it will actually be inserted in to the database.

It is an Access Database back end, which I thought would automatically detect the date format and insert it.... but maybe it doesnt?
