I must admit that I forgot about psql-interfaces when sending my previous mail 
and I have just discovered that I had sent my subscribe requests to the wrong 
address. Fixed now I hope.

The fields in question are type date. I do not know what the internal 
representation is but they are displayed by psql as either dd-mm-yyyy or 
mm-dd-yyyy depending on whether the server has -o -e or not. As in most parts 
of the world, Australia uses dd-mm-yyyy as a standard.

The version I have been using is tagged as V6.30.0000 and 10/4/98.
I have just downloaded the new version. I shall test it and let you know how 
it goes.

Cheers and thanks,
