Can it be done and how... I create a combo box and I want the field to have some alpha some numeric. the drop down will say "N/A". But if they want to put a date in that field, should be able to. My testing show it has to be either or. Also when I type in the year in that field, I will be typing ex. "11/11/08". But I want access to fill in the rest of the date to read "11/11/2008". Can this be done?
