Hey all,
I'm trying to convert a string to a date time object and all my fields
convert except for month which seems to default to january.

here's what I'm doing:
date = "2010-03-16 14:46:38.409137"
 olddate = datetime.strptime(date,"%Y-%m-%j %H:%M:%S.%f")

print date
print olddate

I get:
2010-03-16 14:46:38.409137
2010-01-16 14:46:38.409137

notice the 01 in the second date from what I could tell everything is
formatted correctly.

thanks for the help.
