I am currently trying to save a record to a sql server express database.  One of the fields is a DateTime field that needs to be null upon record creation.  For some reason, even though the linq object that represents the data has a null value set for the record, I keep getting a SqlDateTime error indicating that the date enter should be between 1753 and ......., forgot the max range.  Anyway, if I am setting this field as null why is this occuring and what can I do to fix it(workarounds)?

For the field to accept null values it should be defined as DateTime? not DateTime.

There're two reasons for this error to occur.
1. In database, you didn't set the column with datetime datatype to Allow Null
2. In code, you'd forgot to set a value to some other column with datetime datatype.
