Cannot display Dates returned from Oracle Query - CF6.1

Hi,

We recently upgraded to 6.1 from MX. We have a simple query,

<cfquery name="qEvents" ...>
SELECT
EVENT_NAME,
EVENT_DATE
FROM
EVENTS
</cfquery>

<cfoutput query="qEvents"> #qEvents.EVENT_NAME#, #qEvents.EVENT_DATE# </cfquery>

The cfoutput only displays event_name and does not display event_date.
When I tried <CFDUMP var="#qEvents#">, the Dump displays the date column as "[empty string]".

I tried the same query through a query editor and the dates show up fine in the query results. Why is CF not able to recognize the existence of a date column?. It used to work fine when we were using 5.0 and MX.

Thanks
Greg

Found Answer myself.
Unchecking "Return Timestamps as Strings" in the Advanced Settings for the datasource fixed the problem.
