    I have a short date field on a table. If an invalid date is entered eg
    29/02/05 Access changes it to 05/02/29 without any explanation. my region
    settings are Australia with my date format of dd/mm/yy. I don't want to make
    the user go through selecting a date from a calendar because it takes too
    long. Is there an easy way to stop Access changing the date as entered?

    Try and change the Year input to 4 digits
    format dd/mm/yyyy
    Input mask 00/00/0000
