I have an application where people can reserve cars for service for a particular date and time. They can't make an appointment today, tomorrow or on a holiday and/or weekend. The problem is this: <BR>they enter the date they are requesting in this format: mm/dd/yyyy<BR><BR>i then take what they entered to see if it = date(), date() + 1, etc. however, if they enter something like 01/05/2005 it won't make the comparison b/c the system date is written as 1/5/2005. Does anyone know how to get around this problem?<BR><BR>Thanks!
