This summer vacation I used COM(in PHP 5.0.1) to call ADODB in order to read some data from an Access Database. The database contained some fields in date type. Everything just ran well.
Later, I removed my pages to another server using PHP 4.3.9 and I found the data in date type can not be read correctly.
Should I just update PHP on this server to version above 5.0 in order to solve this problem? 

Reproduce code:
$MM_Conn_STRING="Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=db/xinghaiwww.mdb";
$connection=new COM("ADODB.Connection");
$rs=new COM("ADODB.RecordSet");
$strsql="select top 5 * from order by article_postdate desc";
$rs->open($strsql,$connection, 1, 1);

while (!$rs->eof) {
//'article_postdate' is a field in date type
//ouput $timestr

Expected result:
in php 5.0.1, $timestr should be:
2004-8-26 17:44:58

Actual result:
in php 4.3.9, it became a string of numbers:

COM in PHP 4.x is no longer supported (except in exchange for $$$), and we recommend that you upgrade to PHP 5 where you have already noticed that it works so much better.
