I have an application that runs a stored procedure to retrieve a session variable for 'last close of business' from a database. That value is used by default to populate the app's query date. Unfortunately, when I output this value in <%=> tags, it's in the wrong format, even though it returns in the procedure correctly (ie--the output value is "4/6/2001" when it should be "04/06/2001"). Is anyone can tell me where this conversion might be made and how to prevent it, I'd greatly appreciate it. By the way,the web server's regional date settings are correct (dd/mm/yyyy).<BR><BR>Thank you in advance.
