  $msid=mssql_connect ($server,$user,$pass);
  mssql_select_db("database", $msid);
  $msres=mssql_query("SELECT * FROM TABLE", $msid);
// or   $ret=mssql_fetch_array($msres);
// or   $ret=mssql_fetch_object($msres);
// or   $ret=mssql_fetch_field($msres,23);
// or   $ret=mssql_result ($msres, 0, 23);

every field is returned correctly except of 'datetime' type fields which instead turns to be string(4) containing "   :" or hexadecimally: x20x20x20x3a.

I use freetds 0.53 connecting to MSSQL 7.0 server.
The 'sqsh' tool works correct. It seems the problem exists in PHP code.
It doesn't matter if I use sybase_* or mssql_* functions, the results are the same!

It seems this bug has been resolved in php 4.2.3.
The DATA fields are being imported correctly. (with freetds-0.60/FreeBSD 4.7)
Thanks 4 your support.
