The code below works great but I do have one question about it. Is there any way for me to edit the code

<p><b>Date Completed:</b> <br> <input type="date" name="datepicker_comp" id="datepicker_comp" size="15" value = "YYYY-MM-DD"/></p>

So instead of showing the value of YYYY-MM-DD, it will echo or show today's date 2014-07-22?

The entire code snip it is below & the line of code in question is on line 11.

<?php

echo '<form action="complete.php" method="post">

<fieldset><legend><h2>If you have completed this assignment, click "Complete Task" below.</h2></legend>

<b>Place No:</b> <br><input type="text" name="place" size="15" maxlength="30" value="'.$row[0].'" /><br>
<b>Name:</b> <br><input type="text" name="name" size="35" maxlength="30" value="'.$row[1].'" /><br />
<b>Task:</b><br><input type="text" name="task" size="45" maxlength="35" value="'.$row[2].'" onchange="checkme()"/> <br>
<b>Date Due:</b><br><input type="text" name="datepicker" size="15" maxlength="30" value="'.$row[3].'" onchange="checkme()"/> <br>
<p><b>Date Completed:</b> <br> <input type="date" name="datepicker_comp" id="datepicker_comp" size="15" value = "YYYY-MM-DD"/></p>
<b>Employee:</b><br><input type="text" name="your_name" size="35" maxlength="30" value="'.$row[4].'" onchange="checkme()"/> <br>
</fieldset>

<div align="left"><input type="submit" name="submit" value="Complete Task" /></div> 

<input type="hidden" name="submitted" value="TRUE" />
<input type="hidden" name="id" value="' . $id . '" />
</form>';

} else { // Not a valid user ID.
	echo '<h1 id="mainhead">Page Error</h1>
	<p class="error">This page has been accessed in error.</p><p><br /><br /></p>';
}

mysql_close(); // Close the database connection.

?>

just replace:
value = "YYYY-MM-DD"

by:
value = "<?php echo date(""Y-m-d"); ?>"

Looks like you're already echoing out so use:

value = "'.date('Y-m-d').'"
