You can take the example of billing system where we choose specific date and the results are displayed accordingly.

I would suggest storing the date as a time() [http://php.net/manual/en/function.time.php] and sorting the SQL by time.

SQL is rusty, but something like:

Select date from table

Edit: A link that provides an extended answer: http://www.w3schools.com/sql/sql_orderby.asp

You can convert time() into a date using the date() [http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php] function.

string date ( string $format [, int $timestamp = time() ] )

date("d m y", 78299428934);
