Yes, I am getting $col as you describe. No issue there. Yes, multiple timestamps in a record. This is what I intend.

    [stevieb]: james28909: what's the problem/question?
    [james28909]: it is not an absolute date like "27" or "31". sometimes it is like wednesday or friday
    [james28909]: and i need to format those special instances into an absolute date instead of "yesterday"
    [stevieb]: ask a question on SoPW, and include at least a half-dozen examples of the input, and at least one example of expected output
    [davido]: Exactly: SoPW. This isn't going to be solved easily in the CB.
    [james28909]: in need "yesterday" and so on, to be absolute like "1" or "31"
    [stevieb]: ...and throw some of your existing code into the equation as well, just so readers know you've given a try at it ;)
    [james28909]: ok
    [stevieb]: davido thanks for the link ;) I was being the typical lazy
    [davido]: date parsing is hard. The more examples you can provide of the input (within reason) and expected output, the better.
