Hello I have a servlet which needs to be edited for one field which needs to be restructed for a Canadian Date instead of a US Date. (It is my understanding the Canadians use the 01/03/2012 to say March 1, 2012, whereas the US writes 03/01/2012.) I did a search within my appliation to see how many times this XML field is used and received the following output:

workspace\MMP\build\classes\MMP-COM\MMPExcelCOM\Connect.vb
workspace\MMP\build\classes\MMP-COM\MMPExcelCOM\Connect.vb
build\classes\MMP-COM\MMPWordCOM\Connect.vb
workspace\MMP\build\classes\MMP-COM\MMPWordCOM\Connect.vb
build\classes\MMP-COM\MMPWordCOM\Connect.vb
workspace\MMP\build\classes\MMP-COM\MMPWordCOM\Connect.vb
src\bcc\pages\documentManagement\DMTemplateDataTag.java
workspace\MMP\src\bcc\pages\documentManagement\DMTemplateDataTag.java
src\bcc\pages\documentManagement\DMTemplateLoaderFinancial.java

workspace\MMP\src\MMP-COM\MMPExcelCOM\Connect.vb

workspace\MMP\src\MMP-COM\MMPExcelCOM\Connect.vb
workspace\MMP\src\MMP-COM\MMPWordCOM\Connect.vb
workspace\MMP\src\MMP-COM\MMPWordCOM\Connect.vb

so I can see clearly that it is a VB situation, only I have three files which mention the field. A snippet of code from one of them is as follows:



----------------------------------------------------------------------------

My question is how do I attack the problem, do I try to put some logic in the java file to handle the "DispositionDay" being different for CAnadian users or do I try to do it in the VB or in both?

Thanks,

Your "snippet" sure has a lot of fluff to go through to even find what you're talking about... is it that last line there, Line 138? Maybe it's just me but I still don't understand much about the problem scope based on what you gave. Looks like the app you're maintaining is a Children's Services case management app, huh? I worked on two (HUGE) projects like this for the government. They were not pretty either. Always the poor children getting the short end of it...
