Insert a date.


The format of dates can be very tricky. Most implementations are fairly robust in what will be accepted - but a date such as 01-02-03 might be interpreted in different ways in different countries.

Using a three character month and a four digit year in single quotes (such as '01 Mar 1997') works safely with most systems other than MySQL.

Specific to MySQL

MySQL only accepts dates in the format yyyy-mm-dd.

Be warned that it will accept dates that don't exist - such as 31st September.

"30 days hath September..."
