view date as dd-mm-yyyy but insert to mysql as yyyy-mm-dd

P: 5
I have been trying my best to display a chosen date as dd-mm-yyyy but insert it into the mysql database as yyyy-mm-dd, I know it must be simple but no matter what I try I can't get it to work.

Code:

<?php require_once('../Connections/wind.php'); ?>
<?php
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
{
$theValue = (!get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? addslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
break;
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . doubleval($theValue) . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "defined":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
break;
}
return $theValue;
}

$editFormAction = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
$editFormAction .= "?" . htmlentities($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']);
}

if ((isset($_POST["MM_insert"])) && ($_POST["MM_insert"] == "form1")) {
$insertSQL = sprintf("INSERT INTO readings (windyboy, white, `date`, meter) VALUES (%s, %s, %s, %s)",
GetSQLValueString($_POST['windyboy'], "int"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['white'], "int"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['date'], "date"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['meter'], "int"));

mysql_select_db($database_wind, $wind);
$Result1 = mysql_query($insertSQL, $wind) or die(mysql_error());
}

Please use CODE tags.

Couldn't make out what you wanted unfortunately..
[php]
<?php
$__date = date("D:m:y");
$__date = explode(":", $__date);
$__date = $__date[2].$__date[1].$__date[0];
echo $__date;
?>
[/php]

If you're using javascript you should head over to that forum.
