Incorrect Date on Input

When I input books into Calibre today, the input dates were not correct. They are showing 2008 and in some cases even 2003. I only noticed it today 3/18/2009 as the books I input have dates of 17 Mar 2003, 17 Mar 2006, etc. I looked to see if there was an update option within the Meta Data, but there is not. I checked to make sure my Windows had the correct date and it does. It's not a huge problem but I thought I should let someone know and wasn't sure where to do that.

Has anyone else had this problem?
Thanks, Kaz

You can update the meta data by double clicking on the date
Mine sets the date to the day I import it... No problems so far

If the metadata of the book you're adding specifies a date (lit books commonly do) then that date is used to set the date field instead of the current date, this will change when calibre gains a published date field.
