Hi,

I have a long value which I need to convert in CCYYMMDD format.

I have looked in to API and done some googling also but failed to get answer.

I only get what is CC (Century year)

can anyone tell me how can I passed value in the SimpledateFormat's constructor so that I can format long value

like SimpleDateFormat format = new SimpledateFormat("yyMMdd");

thanks!!!

How is CCYYMMDD different from YYYYMMDD?

Try "yyyyMMdd" as the format string for SimpleDateFormat.

Well, you are supposed to tell us. We don't know what CCYYDDMM is. But yyyyMMdd means 4 digits for the year (ie. 2009), followed by two digits for the month, followed by two digits for the day ... is that the same as CCYYDDMM?
