SELECT date ORDER BY question - MySQL

Hi there, I would like to sort a query by date in ascending order, however I do not want 'empty' dates to appear at the top, I want them to appear at the bottom instead. Is there any way I can do this with one SQL query? desired result: 2007-07-11 09:00:00 2007-07-12 10:00:00 2007-07-13 11:00:00 0000-00-00 00:00:00 0000-00-00 00:00:00 etc Many thanks, Steve...

    Default SELECT date ORDER BY question

    Hi there,

    I would like to sort a query by date in ascending order, however I do
    not want 'empty' dates to appear at the top, I want them to appear at
    the bottom instead.

    Is there any way I can do this with one SQL query?

    desired result:

    2007-07-11 09:00:00
    2007-07-12 10:00:00
    2007-07-13 11:00:00
    0000-00-00 00:00:00
    0000-00-00 00:00:00

    etc

    Many thanks,
    Steve
