    You won't need a Formula to achieve this, just setup the Properties of the DateTime field as follows:

    1. Disable Future date selection:

    2. Set the START & END dates as January 1, 1999 (or any date you prefer from 1999) to today:

    And here's my test form so you can see it in action: https://form.jotform.com/62807921838970
