I am sure this is very simple, but I have a Date field on all my pages of the form.

What I am looking for is that when the date is entered on page 1, it displays on all subsequent pages with no tab to it on those pages.

I am aware of that, but I do not want the field to me modified.  Currently tabbing to it I can make changes and I want it locked with the data from the first date field.

Then use different names and copy the value. Set the field of the copy as read-only.

Name first field "Date" and the other fields "Date_copy", for example. Then use this code as the custom calculation script for the "Date_copy" fields:

event.value = this.getField("Date").valueAsString;
