DATE fields in MySQL don't have the time (h:m:s). > I can format a date but > can't seem to get it to work passing in the value from > $myrow["datefield"]....any ideas?

If you're pulling the dates from the db and just using it purely for display then you may as well use DATE_FORMAT() on them in your query: ..., DATE_FORMAT(...) AS datefield, ... where datefield is the name of your column holding the date. If you're doing calculations on your dates in your PHP code then you should convert them using UNIX_TIMESTAMP() in your query. -- Jason Wong -> Gremlins Associates -> www.gremlins.biz Open Source Software Systems Integrators * Web Design & Hosting * Internet & Intranet Applications Development * /* Only through hard work and perseverance can one truly suffer. */ -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
