data entry of month/year only


I can't imagine this is a unique situation but can't find any guidance... Essentially this is about noting work expereince, as from a resume. The table (linked to people) includes fields for company, date start and date end. The date start/end fields are best viewed as month and year

I'd like to be able to enter mm/yyyy - but can't figure out how to get that accepted as a date.

Or, I am not certain I even need these to be date fields; but they must be consistant. If it's entered as text, how to set up a validation? (I suppose it's like the phone. I see the scripts, but haven't quite figured out how that works either)
