MYSqli Date format glitching on insert

I am doing this with the "t" however it is not inserting the correct data value into the mysql table. I get 1969-12-31 ...

The form variable data has 2023-01-29

$InsertQuery->bindColumn("Event", "t", "".((isset($_POST["Event"]))?$_POST["Event"]:"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");

any thoughts?

  Update this:

$InsertQuery->bindColumn("date", "s", "".((isset($_POST["date"]))?$_POST["date"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");

to this:

$InsertQuery->bindColumn("date", "t", "".((isset($_POST["date"]))?$_POST["date"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");

"s" is for "string" and "t" is for "time".... If you use the correct data type it will automatically convert the date to the correct format to work with mySQL.
