Help! Close Date changing to "today" (and I don't want it to)

Whenever one of our opportunity stages is changed to one of two custom closed/won states, our closed date is automatically updated to today's date.


While I can understand this is behaviour some users might actually desire, this is NOT behavior we want.  Further, this is new behavior - it didn't used to happen.


I have checked field validation rules (we don't have any for opportunities), and anywhere I can think of in the custom settings.  I can't find a culprit.  Can anyone point me in the right direction to disable this behavior?



Sounds like you might have a Workflow rule that updates the close date field to Today when it is marked as "Closed".  Check workflow rules.
