Calendar Year Limit

I am building a questionnaire for school census. Amongst the questions is
"School’s Year Established" Some schools were established in “1870” this year cannot be found in the calendar Any help?.

@theo27, maybe you could have an integer question type that should take 1870. Similarly, you could also have integer question types for the month and day and concat them later on with a calculation.

@Kal_Lam could you please help me understand it more with an example. Thank you.

@theo27, you should be able to do it as shown in the image below:

In the survey tab of your XLSForm:

Data entry screen as seen in Enketo: when nothing is entered

Data entry screen as seen in Enketo: when the dates are completely entered

Reference XLSForm:

Concat Date.xls (29 KB)

@Kal_Lam Thank you. But i am already using Pull Data to prefill the date established(Calendar) for schools who have their data in our database. This same field should allow new schools to enter their dates. Do you suggest i use integer field since it is only the year we are interested in.

@theo27, please feel free to adopt the best approach that works for you.

@Kal_Lam this worked perfectly. What is left is its slowness on the tablet(new).
