i am totally confused as to why these two statements produce dates that aren't in the database?
$boxdate_out = date('d/m/Y', strtotime($row['boxout_date']));
$boxdate_in = date('d/m/Y', strtotime($row['boxin_date']));
they are both returning 30/11/1999
any help in trouble shooting this i would be very grateful. the field in mysql is date and defaults to 0000-00-00. the date should return this value because their is no date allocated. many thanks.
