"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You are correct -- there is no built-in function called ISDATE().  If you need this functionality, then you'll probably need to write your own user-defined function or stored procedure.  UDF's are supported in PSQLv9 and newer.  See "CREATE FUNCTION" from the online manuals for additional details on creating a UDF.
