Does anyone know how to add forward slashes into regular expressions? I am trying to create a date field in the format of DD/MM/YYYY, i have set it up to only allow number and only 8 of them, just need to workout how to add forward slashes in. I would use the date field already in WFB but you have to go through each mouth in order to get to the year you want.

Thanks, David...

Hope that helps, haven't looked at it, but that's the 2 articles that CC has about Reg. Expressions.

Another great resource to try out is:

They have tons of user submitted samples online, including a way to test them online. I think the first entry in their date section is just what you need:

Just change the {1,2} options to {2} (enforcing 2 digits are specified, not 1 or 2) and you should be set.

If you get a chance, take the time to learn regular expressions. They opened up my coding to a whole new realm of possibilities because they are THAT powerful!

Hope this helps!
