I am having problems with sprintf.

This works fine:

$sql = "SELECT *, date_format(`date_posted`, '%M %e, %Y') AS `formattedDate` FROM equipment";
however, this:

$sql = sprintf( "SELECT *, date_format(`date_posted`, '%M %e, %Y') AS `formattedDate` FROM equipment WHERE item_id=%s", $_GET['item_id']);

does not work.

How can I get this to work?
