Hi,

I'm trying to build a search form with a date input field, displayed
like this:

<%= date_select(:purchase_date, params[:purchase_date]) %>

But I'm having trouble adding the criteria in my controller.  So far,
I have:

                if !search[:purchase_date].blank?
                        conditions << 'purchase_date >= ?'
                        conditions << "#{search[:purchase_date]}"
                end
                find(:all, :conditions => conditions, :page => {:size
=> page_size, :current => page_num} )

But the query gets run in a weird way, below:

SELECT count(ec_orders.id) AS count_ec_orders_id FROM `ec_orders`
WHERE purchase_date >= '(3i)24(1i)2006(2i)2')


What is the right way to get the date to be displayed normally in the
SQL query? - Dave
