"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.

Just replace the - with " " (space) and pass it to the below javascript

function getTheDay(aText)

{

myDays= 

["Sunday","Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday","Thursday","Friday","Saturday","Sunday"]

myDate=new Date(eval('"'+aText.value+'"'))

document.form1.textDay.value=myDays[myDate.getDay()]

}
