Actually, you are getting a ZERO value for that.
It's a peculiarity of the way dates and times are stored that a "zero" date, when converted to the default display of a datetime, shows no date but *does* show the time. And, of course, 0 time is the same as "00:00:00" or "12:00:00 AM".
So your real problem is that you simply aren't getting any value, at all.
With no code to look at, that's the most I can say.
