Subject Empty date field and value 30.12.1899
Author Raigo
I am having a strange problem with date field - when a value is not
entered, somehow into that field is inserted 30.12.1899.
When I enter value, everything is correct.

I am using Firebird 1.0.3. when I create the field I use
alter table myTable add myField DATE ;

when I look at it in Delphi's SQL Explorer I see TIMESTAMP.

What might be wrong?
