I'm using the timestamp function of mysql 5. So the value that is getting stored is like 2009-09-21 19:59:07 I'd be happy just to get the searchwizard to create 2 fields that give me the results I need. I can play around with the searching look and field later. I can't even get it to work using the search wizard. It creates to textfields to search by but doesn't do anything else.
