Dear Alan

My frustration too. I don't want the checkbox, but then won't update the
date field in the table.

How did you get around this? As you mention below.

thanks - I always seemed to have other problems with the checkbox being
visible i.e. the biggest problem was having to constantly explain to users
what the dam thing was for :-) Noone can understand how you can have an
invalid date from a date picker.
And I'm sure you have never tried to explain to end-users about how null is
a state and not a value.
Anyway - I've fixed it another way.
