I don't think so.. As I recall, I think I might have had it set up w/o using a prepare before and it was working but I'm not sure. It's certainly very useful and lets me bypass *alot* of overhead (converting to a string and then making the database convert back...). The one complaint I do have is that I don't see a way to pass a timestamp w/ an explicit timezone in binary format into a table which has a 'timestamp with timezone' field. I can pass a binary timestamp into a 'timestamp with timezone' field, but it's interpreted as UTC or the local timezone (can't remember which atm). Stephen
