I realise that CC Zona answered this question earlier but I haven't

I have attempted to use the date_format in generating the query
variable and applying the result with a while loop to display the date
data in an html table as dd-mmm-yyyy

Generating the query variable

include ("inputs/connect.php");

$plantavail = mysql_query("SELECT regno, type, size, drive, mfr,
date_format(online,'%d-%b-%Y'), date_format(offline,'%d-%b-%Y')  FROM
boclair.members where status='heavy' order by type, size");

And later the while loop

while ($myrow = mysql_fetch_array($plantavail)) {
<td class=regno align=right>%s</td>
<td class=type align=center>%s</td>
<td><span class=size>%s<span></td>
<td><span class=drive>%s<span></td>
<td><span class=mfr>%s<span></td>
<td><span class=date>%s<span></td>
<td><span class=date>%s<span></td>
', $myrow['regno'], $myrow['type'], $myrow['size'],
 $myrow['drive'], $myrow['mfr'], $myrow['online'], $myrow['offline']);

The date_format function used this way generates no errors or warning
but the variables, $myrow['online'], $myrow['offline']), are empty and
the dates are not displayed in the html table.

Obviously I am missing the boat.  The manual and references are
apparently beyond me.

Can I have some further help?
