Thank you...

but I'm doing a print_r($node) before inserting
to the database.. so getting [closing_date] => 1
printed should mean that there are some problems
in getting the date values from the apis...

I made some investigations on other modules wich
uses calls to form api for dates...
found profile.module (in core).

I created a new profile field as date (birthdate)
and tryed to assign it a value on my profile page..
but also this seems not to work...

Alwais getting 01/01/1 as birthdate....


p.s.: I didn't find where you used date form api
on your sandbox
