I got it to work using those variables <script type="text/javaScript"> function validate(orderform){   var expmonth = document.getElementById("expmonth"); var expyear = document.getElementById("expyear"); var date = new Date (); var month = date.getMonth(); var year = date.getFullYear(); var selectedYear = expyear.options[expyear.selectedIndex].innerHTML; var selectedMonth = expmonth.options[expmonth.selectedIndex].innerHTML.split('/')[0]; var selectedDate = new Date(selectedYear, selectedMonth, 1);       if(selectedDate < date) {         alert("Please enter a valid expiration date");         return false;     }

I used your variables plus mine and just used your example. if(selectedDate < date) {         alert("Please enter a valid expiration date");         return false;     } its working fine now thank you 😁
