It doesn't like the ";" at the end of the statement. I noticed this a while ago. I'd prefer if it didn't choke on the ";" but it seems to. It's probably more correct to have the ";" there - I don't know why it chokes when going through php.

Can anybody see the problem with this code: $query = "SELECT DATE_FORMAT( exp_date, "%W, %M %d, %Y") AS thedate from tifrequest where user='$user' limit 1,1"; Thanks!
