Hello Daniel,

$date = $birth_year."-".$birth_month."-".$birth_day;

And you can try inserting such kind o' date to a DATETIME field.

There's an alternative way:
$time = mktime(0,0,0, $birth_month, $birth_day, $birth_year);
That would return a unix timestamp that can be written to a BIGINT
field and in future returned by using date("m.d.Y", $time) from your
sql query.

He.

DA> Thanks Jim.

DA> valid date.
