I am trying to format a string using the SimpleDateFormat method and it is not working. I was hoping that someone more experienced could point out my problem. Thank you.

private String assignDate;

public void setAssignDate(String aDate){
SimpleDateFormat fdate = new SimpleDateFormat("MM-DD-YY");
assignDate = fdate.format(aDate);
}catch (Exception e){}

Consult the SimpleDateFormat API, and see what is the difference between m and M, d and D, y and Y, etc.
