hi minh

which database?  what's the datatype of the column?

despite my  recommendation to use the database's datestamp when logging
inserts, there *are* situations where you want to insert a date field from
a form

for example, you stuffed a server date into your hidden field, sent it out
with the page, and when it comes back, you insert it into the database --
this would be one way to measure how long it takes people to fill out your
form   ;o)
