Assuming you were talking about an INSERT method where
you have created a batch of insert statements to run ...

I would think that this would look like 12/12/2000 which
sets up a division if you access the code.

mysql> select 12/12/2004;
+------------+
| 12/12/2004 |
+------------+
| 0.0005 |
+------------+

So when MySQL converts this to a date type, it is no surprise to me
that something like .0005 becomes a 0.

If this is a LOAD DATA INFILE scenario, then I would suggest reading
this page very carefully about how to use it and represent data precisely:
