Subject Re: [IBO] Different date/time formats and parametrized queries

I think you will need to write a custom routine to handle this requirement.
You might check some of the free Delphi component sites for libraries that
have date processing routines.

That's an interesting idea to incorporate this into the getter of the AsDate
getter method. I'm open to suggestions on how this logic could be hooked in
and made use of for your flexibility.
