Hi guys;
is it possible to type in on a form a date as 010111 and have display in a form as 01/01/11?

Also I would like to use the Today() function to automatically insert todays date on a form

Thanks Terry

It is easy to put the current date into a table for each newly inserted record. No need to show it in the form. In the form you can use a Writer field to display today's date.
