date ( string format [, int timestamp] )
To turn a php timestamp into something that will be recognized by the
mysql DATE type, you might try this:
$due_date= //however you set up you invoice+14days timestamp
$mysql_date = date("Y-m-d",$due_date);// makes a string like YYYY-MM-DD
The php date() function can form just about any string you want to make
from a date if you've got a timestamp, which you do.
What formate is your original date in? There may be an even simpler way
of doing it.

Actualy I have tried something with mktimes, but I only get the
timestamp of the due date. I have troubles to write that into a
dabasefield that was set to datetype.
