Hi All,

I tried this piece of code but it is giving me Unparseable date exception. Can you please help me out?

Divya,

Please use the code tag to post your tag. This tag retains the code indentation.

The format of your date 'dd-MMM-yyyy' does not matches with the exact value that you pass to it, i.e., '21JUN2010'. Either remove hyphens from the date format, or add hyphens to the actual date value.

Date format 'dd-MMM-yyyy' will correctly parse value '21-JUN-2010'. And Date format 'ddMMMyyyy' will correctly parse value '21JUN2010'

cheers
Mala

Hi Mala,

Thanks a lot for the suggestion. I had missed hyphen in the date format.

Cheers,
Divya
