Hi Matt,

No love ... That gets me "25-12-2003 00:00:00" as a *string* as output.

Thanks for the look though!

(Who neglected to mention a "key" piece of information ... I'm using a 
third party report generator tool, BRIO, against the Oracle database.  
The suggested solution would probably work in SQL+ ... but I'm stuck 
where I'm stuck.)
