I need to know the currency symbol if one is used and how to write out the date in Polish.

As in America we use $1 to indicate one dollar, what would it be in Poland? I know you use PLN but is it PLN1?

and todays date I would write it in english as February 2, 2007, what would that be in Polish?
thanks for all of yoru help

In Poland they write the date first, then month, so it would be 2- 02 (Luty) - 07

Złoty is polish currency so you write 1zł.

That is correct.

PLN:
The New Polish Złoty is the unofficial name of the current currency of Poland, introduced on January 1, 1995 as a result of the devaluation of the old currency.

What do you mean? like this?: drugi luty dwa tysiące siódmy rok.
Which means: Second of February 2007

we write just 03 - 02 - 2007 - it is the formal way! Day - month - year ! We dont use the letters, only numbers

It's old fashion maybe and disapearing but I've seen it written like this:
3 luty, 1999 or
22 sierpnia, 2003

People who do handwriting would often write dates using Roman numerals but only to indicate the month:

12. XII. 2007, 01.III. 2003 etc
