repeat region fails

repeat region fails


I'm having an issue with applying a repeat region;

The following works fine (a calculated unix_timestamp, with the current year and birth month and day, so that this year's day can be displayed).

<p><?php echo strftime("%a %e %b", $rsBirthdays->getColumnVal("cbirth")); ?> - <?php echo($rsBirthdays->getColumnVal("FirstName")); ?> <?php echo($rsBirthdays->getColumnVal("Surname")); ?></p>

Showing the first record properly.

However, as soon as I apply the repeat region:

while(!$rsBirthdays->atEnd()) {
<p><?php echo strftime("%a %e %b", $rsBirthdays->getColumnVal("cbirth")); ?> - <?php echo($rsBirthdays->getColumnVal("FirstName")); ?> <?php echo($rsBirthdays->getColumnVal("Surname")); ?></p>
$rsBirthdays->moveFirst(); //return RS to first record

the region repeats, but I get the following error where the date should be displayed:

Warning: strftime() expects parameter 2 to be long, string given in /home/sites/ on line 77 - (members name here)

Hope there's a simple solution!

(I should add that I have a similar 'events' page where everything works fine - but I can't see any differences!)

Many thanks
