      Manually enter date in field with drop-down calendar without any particular formatting

      Post

      Hello all,

      I've set up a "Date" field in my layout to display a Drop-down calendar.  I would like the ability to input a date manually without having to follow a particular format (i.e. Year only [2011], month/year [08/2011], etc.), however whenever I attempt to the following error message appears:

      The value of this field must be a valid date in the range of years 1 to 400 and should look like "12/25/2003".

      I've experimented with the different options in the Data Formatting tab in the Inspector window without any success.  I'd greatly appreciate it if anyone has any information they can share on how I could achieve this.

      Thanks in advance,

      p
