Im kind of new to this mysql stuff but anyway...

I have a row in a table with a timestamp of 14 chars and i dont know how to
convert the row named 'tidsstampel' into something like this:

select DATE_FORMAT('1997-10-04 22:23:00', '%W %M %Y');

i dont wanna use a static date for this, id rather use a variable that i get
from the dbase..

anyone getting this or is it just ribberish?
