$date = $_GET['date'];
$newdate = date("M d, Y", strtotime($date));
select statement
$sql = 'select service, activity, department, company, item, date, quantity, type, new'
	. ' from act '
	. ' order '
	. ' by company desc';
	$result = mysql_query($sql);
	return $result;
insert statement
$query = 'INSERT INTO `supply` (`type`, `service`, `quantity`, `department`, `date`, `request`) VALUES (\''.$type.'\', \''.$service.'\', \''.$quantity.'\', \''.$department.'\', \''.$newdate.'\', \''.$request.'\');';
