Hi Michael,

MySQL date and *NIX OS date is not of the same format, as you seeing in 
your case, too

You could have MySQL supply you with a date, not server OS.

In KSH script this is going to look like:

date_to_purge=$(mysql -uroot --password=mypassword test --silent -e 

and use $date_to_purge variable instead of $myDate
