How do i (can i) place in a cell a message - that isn't part of the active
I want to tell the user the data type they should be entering as 'date type
01/01/2012' and that the message will disappears as the user starts typing
Thanks for any help

Go to the cell.
In menu Data > Validity.
In tab Input Help enter Title and help text.
Check "Show input help when cell is selected."

You shoud not use 01/01/2012 as example, because it is not clear, which 01 is the day and which the month. If you want an example, use a day which is impossible as month e.g. 31/12/2012 or use the more general form dd/mm/yyyy.

Kind regards
