For your 1st question, there is a setting in the File/Form Properties/Defaults where you can set a target version for the form. As each version includes new functionalty then you need to make sure that the client that is used to read th eform matches what you are building. So if you build a form targeted at version 8 and someone eith version 7 opens it a warning will appear that indicates that they are running an older version than the target and som features may not work. It will not stop them from using the form it is simply a warning.
For the second issue have a look at pattern masks. They can be made to display the date in a particular format as well as ensure that the yuser enters in the format pf your choosing. You can validate what they entered and put up a warning if they do not comply.
I understand about dates and formats, and the dates is being displayed in the way that I want it, but I can't find an option anywhere which says the user can ONLY select a date via the drop down menu.
I actually want typing to be restricted so that the only way a user can input a date is by selecting drop down arrow and selecting a date from the calendar that pops up. Is this possible? Please let me know it if it is and how I can do it. Apart from that, everything seems to be ok!
I do not believe that is possible.
