I have a table in a MySQL that I need to update a date/time field where the date protion needs to be extracted from a text field as shown below.

Field1, date/time, current value = '0000-00-00 00:00:00'
Field2, text, current value = Vehicle05/24/08

I want to update Field1 to '2008-05-24 00:00:00'  extracting the date from Field2 and where Field1='0000-00-00 00:00:00'

I can do this in Access with a combination of Datevalue and Right but I need to run this directly on the MySQL server do to the number of records in the table.
