I could massage the sql date format in my select statement, but I am trying to keep my select statements as simple as I can, so I have 2 functions that convert to and from the standard sql date format.

What I need is to tell Livecode to sue SLQ date formatting. I have no real hope, but if someone knows of a way to do that, I would appreciate it.
