Date questions require the input of specific dates in a normal date format (month/day/year). To answer a date question, click on the first (left-most) spot in the blank datefield displayed in the white textbox. Type the date using a month/day/year format.
To make corrections to a date question, position the cursor in the textbox and use the delete or backspace key to erase your errors. Type any corrections normally.
Note that some date questions, particularly those embedded within a grid question, employ a calendar tool that allows you to select a date without typing.
