text field read as date
I have a field that initially was set as a date field and later changed to a text field when i realized that sometimes there needed to be an estimated time "approx 2 weeks" instead of an exact date.
The problem im having is that when anything is entered into the field it displays a warning saying the field should contain a date in one of the following formats, then shows the format to enter your date. I checked to ensure the Validation was not selected to strict data type and date was selected and still continues to give me the same popup.
has anyone had this problem before and is there a way to fix it without deleting the field and creating a new one?
