auto update date from DA form - is this possible?

auto update date from DA form - is this possible?

I have insert and update php pages which connect to a mysql database - I wondered if it's possible to have the form automatically generate the date in the db table?
I've set this up so that the results page displays the latest record first, but it's sorted by date descending and if the date isn't entered manually in the textfield, it goes to the bottom of the list.
I could get the client to enter the date manually but I think it'll get forgotten, so is it possible to get the form to add the date to the db in the 0000-00-00 style?
Thanks in advance...
