    I accidentally wrote the wrong date on my worksheet. I say:

    I made a mistake with/on the date.

    I'd use "with".

    I find "on" and "in" unnatural. Like bhaisahab, I would use "with".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
