Hello Michael,
    token_date must be a DATE FIELD...

    http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/Column_types.html
    

MG> Hello,

MG>         I need to store the date of record / entry in the mysql database, so I 
have the following table create statement:

MG> CREATE TABLE `token_table` (
MG>   `token_id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
MG>   `token_utuser_id` int(11) NOT NULL default '0',
MG>   `token_name` varchar(100) NOT NULL default '',
MG>   `token_date` varchar(100) NOT NULL default '',
MG>   `token_user_id` varchar(100) default '',
MG>   `token_ticket_id` varchar(100) default '',
MG>   `token_data` varchar(100) default '',
MG>   PRIMARY KEY  (`token_id`),
MG>   KEY `tokencheck` (`token_utuser_id`,`token_name`)
MG> ) TYPE=MyISAM; 

MG> So in the token_date field I am storing the date in the following format from PHP:

MG> date("d/m/Y") which creates the following entry "05/07/2004" (example).

MG> I would like to know fro the list is ... is this the best way to store the date ? 
Would this be easy to select against ?

MG> Michael.
