Re: Date Format In reply to
The way the date subroutine works, it needs some sort of character to separate each portion of the date (ie: day-month-year). If you take out that separator, you wind up with a date of "daymonthyear" and DBMan doesn't know where each portion starts and finishes (which it needs to convert dates to UNIX format).

If you have a "Date" field in your database, perhaps a better idea would be to keep the dashes in the date, but take them out when you display the record?
