I had the same problem when I wanted to compare dates. After a lot of help
through this forum I used dropdown boxes to ensure the dates were entered
correctly, (in the UK we use dd,mm,yyy). I made each value it's own variable
then merged them as follows before inserting them into a date field

$eventdatestring = "$eventyear". "$eventmonth". "$eventday";
