Hi Charles,

Not sure I understand well what you want:
If you want to select by script the three right items in your option  
menus, it's quite easy :-)

local tDate
put the short date into tDate
convert tDate from short date to dateItems
select line lineOffset(item 1 of tDate, btn "Year" ) of btn "Year"
set the menuHistory of btn "Month" to item 2 of tDate
set the menuHistory of btn "Day" to item 3 of tDate
