Hi i have the following code

 <asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="Year" runat="server" ControlToValidate="txtdate"
            ErrorMessage="Please Enter yyyy-mm" ValidationExpression="(19|20)\d\d-(0[1-9]|1[012])"></asp:RegularExpressionValidator>

which makes sure that the date entered is on yyyy-mm format

hi R8VI,

               you have add a CompareValidator control in your page, which helps u to compare between your txtDate textBox and textEnddate textBox.
<asp:CompareValidator ID="CompareValidator1" runat="server" 
            ControlToCompare="txtDate" ControlToValidate="textEnddate" ErrorMessage="end date is never less than start" 
            Operator="GreaterThanEqual" Type="Date"></asp:CompareValidator>

In this case you'd have to use a custom validator that inspects the values in the two textboxes, breaks up the numbers and works out if they are valid. You can't use a standard compare operator as you aren't actually using valid dates.
