That'll do it. Thank you!

When users click the button, I want the result returned in in less under 4
seconds. Right now it is closer to 10. Consequently, they click twice.
Shaving 2 seconds here and there will make a huge difference. It will also
allow the computer to handle a higher volume of requests.

No, I cannot. The concatenation uses the year that the measurement was
made--from the database--and the month/day combination from the user. See
