You cannot have illegal dates: 99, -77, 88 are not dates and if they 
were, they are not legal, there is no date that contains, e.g. "99".  A 
command for a legal date range and legal date values should look 
something like this (using European date format here):

legdat
  RANGE 01/01/1900 31/12/2008
  LEGAL
    30/12/2009
    24/11/2008
  END
END


Regards,

Hans
