I have a bit of a problem recognizing the dates read from an Ingres databse.
I am using Coldfusion MX7 and I run into the following scenarios:
a) - if the database value is NULL, the CF returns a non date value.
b) - if the databse value has been set to an empty string, CF returns
Now, this can be dealt with and display the dates accordingly.
But what happens when a date is really set to a valid date of "1970-01-01"?
How would coldfusion check whether the database value is actually an empty
string or "1970-01-01"?
