function isValidDate( date_fld_id ){

var dt_fld_obj = document.getElementById( date_fld_id );
var str_date = dt_fld_obj.value;

var dt_bits = str_date.split('/');
var yr= parseInt(dt_bits[2]);
var real_mon = parseInt(dt_bits[1]);
var mon = parseInt(dt_bits[1]) - 1;
var day = parseInt(dt_bits[0]);

var today = new Date();
var dd = today.getDate();
var mm = today.getMonth()+1;
var yyyy = today.getFullYear();


var d = new Date( yr , mon , day , 0, 0, 0,0 );

var ret = (!isNaN(d) && ( d.getDate() == day && d.getMonth() == mon && d.getFullYear() == yr)) ;

if( ret ){
//if given date is valid one, then do the following
if( yr > yyyy ){
alert("Invalid date. Year should not exceed current year.");
dt_fld_obj.focus();
return false;
}


if( yr == yyyy){

if( real_mon > mm ){
alert("Invalid date. Month should not exceed current month.");

return false;
