HELP: how to validate mm/dd/yyyy dates using regul
There are many examples of validation phone numbers and zip codes using VBScript regular expressions. But can anyone show how to validate a US style date mm/dd/yyyy using regular expressions in VBScript?
RE: HELP: how to validate mm/dd/yyyy dates using r
Regular expressions aren't really suited to date validation - it's too procedural, rather than pattern based. RegExps are great when you want to match a pattern (say, some alphanumeric characters, followed by an @, followed by more alphanums, followed by a dot, followed by more alphanums) but no good when you need arithmetic/mathematical checking, which is what you need to validate a date.<BR><BR>Dunc
