Validation Problem

Converting a book from InDesign CS4. When running through a validation program I keep getting the following error message:

ERROR: 101_SupposeItIsBS.epub/OEBPS/content.opf(2): date value '' is not valid. The date must be in the form YYYY, YYYY-MM or YYYY-MM-DD (e.g., "1993", "1993-05", or "1993-05-01"). See http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-datetime.

I understand the message, but can't find the location of the problem. I have gone through the "File Info" information in InDesign and made sure that all of the dates are in the right format. Still get the message.

Any ideas?

Yes it's in the content.opf file which the export produces.

See this thread...it applies to you.

Can you open the content.opf file and look at line 2?

I can do that. On the other hand is there a way to change a setting or something in InDesign that will cause it to export correctly?

No there isn't. You have to fix it everytime

Thanks. You'd think Adobe would fix that. You'd also think they would fix InDesign crashing every time it exports a book for digital editions. You'd think, but you'd be wrong.
