Hi all.
I'm writing a small app - I only write small apps :-) - to write an sql dump file from a ClientDataset. I'm now trying to convert dates. So, assunming in MySql I have to insert values in the following format


I wish to know how to get the format date are stored within ClientDataset. Since this format depends on locxal settings I can have in date field a string like 'dd/mm/yyyy', or 'mm/dd/yyyy' and so on. I should be able to get the actual date format within ClientDataset in order to convert that date in the format 'yyyy-mm-dd' (I solved yet the problem of slashes and dashes using AnsiReplaceText function)

Thanks to all for any help.
