Hi pnsreee,

What kind of "validation" do you want to do? Are you just trying to ensure that the date format is "valid"? (BTW, why are you using 2-digit years? Were you on another planet 8 years ago?) Or are you trying to determine whether the date actually exists? ("02/29/2100" for example?) Or are you trying to determine that it is in the future or past?

I don't think we can help you much without knowing what conditions the "date" needs to meet in order to be "valid". I also have no idea whether a regex solution is remotely near reasonable without knowing about your validity conditions.

Best Regards,
