Scott

Thanks for pointing this out. I'm sorry it caused you so much problems. 
I'll see that it gets fixed in the next release.

Subject: InstantDB: Bug: Wrong default dateTimeFormat in 3.25 

> The dateTimeFormat default listed in the documentation is
>  yyyy-mm-dd hh:nn:ss.lll  
> However, the format listed in the sample.prp, and the format
> used if no value is given in the database prp file is:
>  yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss.lll  
> Note that the token for minutes is supposed to be 'nn', not
> 'mm', which is the token for the month.
> This causes the month to appear in place of the minutes 
> whenever the date is retrieved as a String, such as in the
> SQLBuilder utility. 
> 
> I'm ashamed to say how much time was spent here today 
> trying to figure out why the times we thought we were 
> inserting into the database were not showing up correctly
> when we viewed the database in SQLBuilder.
> 
> The workaround is easy: just fix the dateTimeFormat property
> in the database '.prp' file, or explicitly with the 
> 'SET DATETIME FORMAT' command.  Of course, it should still
> go on the list of things to fix in the next release :-)
