I have a user-defined date/time field on a form that has the initial value

set to Date(). I want the user to be able to edit the date as needed, but

quite often it will be the current date. In other office programs, you can

enter a date such as 4/29 and it will autofill with 4/29/09 adding the

current year. In my case it comes out 4/29/10. Is this normal behavior and

is there a way around it? I'm fairly new to Outlook forms.

Thanks,

Mary

Yes, that's normal behavior -- if the year is not specified, Outlook adds

the most likely year. I'm not sure what kind of workaround you're looking

for, unless you can read the user's mind about what date they're likely to

really want.
