Go for it!

For what it's worth, if you only have to insert into a MySQL datetime  
field (not sure about other SQL databases), it will accept any  
delimeter in the formatting, including commas. So you can use item 1  
to 6 of a dateitems variable and use it directly without any conversion.

Happy Day Before Boxing Day.
