Date Validation Problems

P: n/a
I am having some validation and insertion problems. I am using a date
picker that takes the selected date and puts it to ("dd-MMM-yyyy") format,
as this was the only format that Oracle would accept on an insert, however,
when it does a comparision validation it is failing. I have

StartDate = comparing to an invisible textbox that contains todays date
EndDate = comparing to StartDate needing to be >=
SetupDate = comparing to StartDate needing to be <=

So how it looks is like this

26-MAY-2004 = text box with Today's date
24-JUN-2004 = StartDate
24-JUN-2004 = EndDate
24-JUN-2004 = SetupDate

This example fails on validation stating that StartDate must be greater than
today's date. I know the problem has to do with the conversion to a string
format where JUN would be less than MAY thus making it invalid. When I use
the ToShortDateString option the validation works but the insert into the
database fails because the format is which oracle is not accepting.

I have tried taking the ToShortDateString and formatting that into another
variable, but it says it can't take a string variable and convert it into
the appropriate dd-MMM-yyyy format. Any ideas on how to get this to compare
for validation correctly and get it to insert into the database?
