I am curious how one can "reformat incorrect dates" successfully?  With
the discussion a few days ago about 03/03/03 and 07/11/01, etc, I was
thinking that correcting dates is now impossible, except at the entry
point.  btw, if the field is a date field, then you don't have to worry. 
It won't be accepted anyway.
