Default Masked textbox display date wrong!

Hi Everyone,

I am using the VB 2005 database configuration wizard to build a form displaying the records from a SQL table. The problem is the masked textbox. The mask I set to is short date 00/00/0000, but it displayed the dates wrong. For example, if the DOB in the database is "02/03/1990", it displays "23/19/90__".

The other problem I have is, sometimes there is no DOB data to document, so I need to leave it blank, but it would not allow me to leave the textbox control, if I don't provide it with a date! (The DOB column in SQL database is set to "allow null")

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
