Subject: [PHP] Timestamps and strftime


I am having a problem trying to use a date that I take from a MySQL 
database.  The field is defined as a timestamp in the database.  I 
extract it using PDO and I am trying to use the value with strftime as 

foreach ($stmt->fetchall(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC) as $row) {
  echo strftime("%j",$row['UpdateDate']);

but it returns the following error:

PHP Notice:  A non well formed numeric value encountered...

I understand that this is because strftime is expecting a numeric value 
and that ,$row['UpdateDate'] is a character but I am not sure how to 
resolve the issue.  Any help would be apprecaited.
