That's an interesting question. Do you know when the voucher was purchased?

According to my voucher date format--for you it should be October-4th.
But again you should be knowing in which month you bought that voucher.

Hi all,
I inquired from SUN itself and came to know that the date format in vouchers are MM/DD/YYYY. Below am posting out the reply from sun representative.

Hi Pranav

Kindly note that the date format mentioned in the Voucher is
MM/DD/YYYY. So your expiry date is 4th October 2008.

Anup



Thanks
