    By default, the option value property is the one sent to the server when the page is submitted. But if it is not specified, the selected option text property is the one submitted.

    So, you should specify the value attribute for the Month combobox

    <select name="FirstSelectMonth" onchange="ChangeOptionDays('FirstSelect')">
    <optionvalue="1">Jan</option>
    <optionvalue="2">Feb</option>
    <optionvalue="3">Mar</option>
    ...
    </select>

    Then in the server-side, concatenate the date values in the desired format:

    condate = Request.form("FirstSelectDay") & "/" & Request.Form("FirstSelectMonth") & "/" & Request.Form("FirstSelectYear")

        I used the element names used in the original date selector script - FirstSelectDay, FirstSelectMonth and FirstSelectYear

        Of course you need to change them accordingly.
