in reply to ADO and date formats.

First, make sure that your results aren't coming from how you have Windows set to display dates (Control Panel/Regional Options). I'm willing to bet that has something to do with your problem.

Assuming that all checks out ok, though, I'd investigate Date::Manip's ParseDate function to normalize your dates regardless of what format ADO returns it in.

[Corion]: LanX: Yes, that's the main problem - you have lots (and lots) of workarounds in various places and stages of the processing, and to clean that mess up requires action across the complete codebase. And it's almost impossible to do it piece-by-piece
