So, this is a variant data type that would be converted from a native
time. mmm.. ok, I tried the following and it worked. So that should
clear up
any problems with date format.

$status = $trackHandle->{playedDate} = "$year-$month-$day

I'm a little curious about why the problem exists to begin with. Perhaps
recent upgrade has changed COleDateTime or perhaps version
has something new in IITTrack. Oh well. No bother, it works for me now.

My dates/currency are set for Greek/European with English Windows and
US/Greek Keyboards..
