    I could not find a thread that addresses my specific need.

    I want to have a field where users can select a month and a year. Specifically, the question that users will answer is: "Employment Start Date:" and they would select from "month" and "year" dropdown fields (on one line). 

    Thanks.

    It would be easier for users to just select a month from a month drop-down menu and a year from a year drop-down menu. Is that possible?

    I used the Dynamic Dropdowns widget. It worked great! Thanks.

    I used the first response from Mike_G on one of my forms and it works great (http://form.jotformpro.com/form/52386319191964) but the submission is still showing the day. Is there any way to remove the day from the submission as well?

    I have just reviewed the form and notice that my colleague added CSS to hide the day field. This only hides the field in the form, but when users enters the date, the day field will automatically be filled. If you only wish to save the month and year, I would suggest you try the other work arounds provided by my colleagues.
