I think you can try the SQL:
Select STR_TO_DATE([field_name], '%d/%m/%Y') as newDate , [field_name] from 
[table] order by newDate asc;

Subject: [PHP-DB] ordering date in varchar

We have a problem. We have given the dates as date.month.year eg 27.12.2007
The field is named as varchar. We have to arrange ths list of dates in
ascending order. Can anyone help? Varchar arranges the list by scanning from
left side. Perhaps scanning from right side will do. How to do it?
