Date sorting and format in cascading dropdown box



I can pick the type of date formatting for an ordinary dropdown box containing date/time records with no problem. However, when I populate a date/time dropdown box based on the contents of another dropdown box, then the functionality of selecting the display format is lost and, more to the point, sorting of the dates is based on the month, not year. It sorts based on this format 04/22/1999 rather than 1999/04/22 -- which makes sorting of the most recent to oldest date impossible. The other problem is that the time displays 00:00:00 for all the dates. I would rather not have the time display at all which you can modify for an ordinary dropdown box but when using a cascading dropdown that feature seems to not be available. I tried importing my data into Caspio by the yyyy-mm-dd format but after the import it is mm-dd-yyyy.

I am looking for work-a-rounds. Any ideas? Thanks!
