on add_leading_zeros(i, desired_length) set i to i as number set i_length to (length of (i as string)) if i_length ≥ desired_length then return i as string text -desired_length thru -1 of ("00000000000000000000000000000000" & i) end add_leading_zeros

on pretty_date(_date) set year to year of date set month to my addleading_zeros((month of _date), 2) set day to my addleading_zeros((day of _date), 2) year & month & day as string end prettydate

on parse_date(s) set year to (text 1 thru 4 of s) set month to (text 5 thru 6 of s) set day to (text 7 thru 8 of s) date (month & "/" & _day & "/" & year) end parsedate

on valid_date(s) if s = missing value then return false try parse_date(s) on error return false end try true end valid_date
