change value of date inputs if the main date has changed

I have a form that will hold expense receipts.  I have a dynamic table which allows for users to enter a receipt, and add a new row for each item on that receipt.

If they initially choose July 1 for the first table row, then create three more rows after that, and go back and adjust the date to July 2, I want the newly created rows to refresh to the new date.

Right now, I have the date field cloning for each table row that is added, but cannot figure out how to change all dates if the main row's date changes.

Also, I have each new row's date field set to read only, so users cannot select multiple dates with the assumption that all entries on one receipt will be for the same day.

			<div id="row">
				<div id="left">
					<strong>Receipt Items:</strong>
				</div>
				<div id="right">
					<i>Only add another line to the receipt below IF you have multiple items on one receipt.</i>
					<br /><br />
					<table border="0" width="825px" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5" name="receipts" id = "receipts">

												$getCats = mysql_query("SELECT id, nominalName FROM expense_nominalCodes ORDER BY id") or die("Get Cats: " . mysql_error());
												
												if(mysql_num_rows($getCats) > 0)
													{
													while($catData = mysql_fetch_array($getCats))

your line at 117 is actually disabling all the date fields including the one in the main row, so not sure how the user will change it

However just add this line to your method addReceiptItem() at the end of it after line 117. instead of keyup, you could also use change the first will change all the fields as and when you type, the second method will updated the fields on focus out
$('.date').keyup(function (){
    $('.date').val($('.date').val());
});
