hi friends,

I am trying to read a file where date is in the form of string like
23-MAR-2004.

I want to check whether the string i.e., 23-MAR-2004 is valid date or not .. and if it is valid date.... i need to store in a variable.

Is there any function to check whether it is valid date or not? if not, any other way?

Bye
Pravin

You can use the SimpleDateFormat class & parse this string. if it's not a valid date in the specified format you get an exception.
