Hi this is my PHP code.

$d=date("Ymd");
echo date("Y/m/d",$d);
output 1970/08/21
what i expect is m/d/Y
let me know how we do it in PHP, I am sure the solution can be applied to any date that has been created in PHP.
Regards,P.

Hi angelII,

Perfect that works, but i was not able to store the value inside mysql, mysql puts the value as 0000-00-00. so i want to create a date object with $d=date("Ymd"); and format $d.
Please let me know if its possible.

Regards,G.
