I'm trying to convert an ASP/Access tutorial to PHP/MySQL and have a
question regarding MySQL.

In Access one can create a date field and set the default to "Date()" to get
the current date but according to the mysql manual:


> Default values must be constants. This means, for example, that you cannot set
> the default for a date column to be the value of a function such as NOW() or

Is there any other way to have MySQL automate this? I've heard of something
called stored procedures but am unfamiliar. -- Must this be done on the
scripting side?
