How do I convert UNIX timestamps to the date format d.m.Y inside a query

Have done some more testing. From what I see, MySQL's FROM_UNIXTIME() function does not support negative epoch timestamps (just as the inverse function UNIX_TIMESTAMP() does not either).

It looks like I could use the DATE_ADD function

SELECT Name, DATE_ADD('1970-01-01', INTERVAL Date_of_birth second) As DOB FROM Test

gives me 1964-08-11 00:00:00 which is correct.

What I need now is a way to format this date the way we use it in Norway which is 11.08.1964 or

It still have to be done inside the query. Could it be done ?
