    Custom Validation Script help

    albertc52121104

      I am new to this and am looking for some help with the syntax for a custom validation script.  I have a field for users to input, but I need it in this format, ##/##/##.  I tried to find some examples online, but they're all text examples so using "##/##/##" as the criteria always looks for that, so no luck there.

       

      Essentially I need the script to recognize that if they enter 010116 it will tell them it should be 01/01/16.  I know that formatting the field as a date will do this, but sometimes (rarely) the user can use 99/99/99 and Adobe does not recognize this as a valid date.

       

      Any help would be greatly appreciated!
