It looks like the time is off by one hour (11:00 PM instead of midnight) after
converting the date from the database into a VEE timestamp.  Therefore the VEE
date is one day behind.  I don't know how or where Date/Time values are
converted to VEE timestamps, so I don't know if the problem is with VEE or DAO.

As a workaround to get the right date value for your example, you can add 3601
to the field value returned for the date.  Note that time 00:00:00 is the last
second of the day.  The date rolls over between 00:00:00 and 00:00:01.
