HI All,
   When I try it it is working fine but While updating it is giving
error. If some of my date fields are NULL and try to update the values
then it is giving the following ERROR:

Error Type: Invalid Date-Time String
Error Value:

My Scripts are:

<input type="text" name="date1:date" size="15" value="<dtml-if
"Child_Enrollment_Date==_.None"><dtml-var Child_Enrollment_Date
"REQUEST.set('Child_Enrollment_Date1',Child_Enrollment_Date.strftime('%m/%d/%Y'))"><dtml-var Child_Enrollment_Date1 null=""></dtml-if>">
<input type="text" name="date2:date" size="15" value="<dtml-if
"Child_Enrollment_Date==_.None"><dtml-var Child_Enrollment_Date
"REQUEST.set('Child_Enrollment_Date1',Child_Enrollment_Date.strftime('%m/%d/%Y'))"><dtml-var Child_Enrollment_Date1 null=""></dtml-if>">


<dtml-call "REQUEST.set('date1',date1.strftime('%Y/%m/%d'))">
<dtml-if "date2==''">
<dtml-call "REQUEST.set('date2',_.None)">
<dtml-call "REQUEST.set('date2',date2.strftime('%Y/%m/%d'))">

Where I am filling date1 field and not filling date2 field. While
submitting the form It is giving the above error. How can I rectify
this. How can I validate if date field is not filled then how can I
submit that? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks & Regards
