Hi Experts!


Could you point a way to transform a string representing a date in the format dd/mm/yyyy to another string in the format
yyyymmdd   ?

I tryed that way with no success
Returning...
700101
700101
(obviously wrong)

It's easy to do by using substring but certainly exists a more affordable way.


<?php
    
    $dt_abertura   = '15/12/2015';
    $dt_fechamento = '20/12/2015';
    
     $dt_abertura     = date('ymd', strtotime($dt_abertura));
     $dt_fechamento   = date('ymd', strtotime($dt_fechamento));
     
     
     echo  $dt_abertura;
     echo "<br/>";
     

     echo  $dt_fechamento;
     echo "<br/>";
     
?>

Open in new window


Thanks in advance!
