Hey guys! I get the following compile error when I try to run the below referenced code:

com\chicken\DoIt2.java:88: cannot find symbol
symbol :method setDate(int,java.util.Date)
location: interface java.sql.PreparedStatement
in.setDate(1, previousDate);

I can't figure this out. I've looked at the javdocs, etc.

That method takes a parameter of type java.sql.Date, not java.util.Date.

Thanks Paul!

I should have paid closer attention. Now I need to figure out how to parse my initial date.

Just take the java.util.Date object which you already have, and convert it to a java.sql.Date object. You'll find that java.sql.Date does have a suitable constructor.
