N6REJ created the topic: Julian to timestamp

I have a table that currently has the date fields all built wrong. However, it does have a julian date field which is correct so I need to take that value, convert it to gregorian date and then use that value for the "new" date/time field that I added.
Then delete the other year/day/month fields.
I'd appreciate any help you'll render

This is not a BF thing, but pure SQL :)

If you havec a table with day, month, year fields (integer fields), and you want to push this in a standard date field, you can try (after a serious backup of your database, before such treatment) the following, in SQL tab from phpMyAdmin, or in MySQL console

Say your field names are myday, mymonth, myyear and mydate: with tablename mytable
UPDATE mytable SET mydate=STR_TO_DATE(CONCAT(myyear,'-',LPAD(mymonth,2,'00'),'-',LPAD(myday,2,'00')), '%Y-%m-%d')
