MySQL DATE_FORMAT for INSERT

Hi guys, I'm always getting a Data Truncation error in MySQL


com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlDataTruncation: Data truncation: Truncated incorrect datetime value: '03/02/1996'



Would it be possible to use MySQL DATE_FORMAT() function to format the String and INSERT a record like this:

[code
INSERT INTO education_tbl(highschool, highschool_date_graduated, college, college_date_graduated, course) VALUES(?, DATE_FORMAT(?, '%m-%d-%y'), ?, DATE_FORMAT(?, '%m-%d-%y'), ?)
[/code]


I'm still getting the error after I did that... Thanks!

Best thing to do is use a PreparedStatement and bind the Date variable, then you don't need to care about the format or use any database funtions.
