    Default Re: date format

    See the following class SimpleDateFormat (Java Platform SE 6)
    You can specify the date format you wish to use, the use the parse function to retrieve the Date - entered values which cannot be parsed will throw an exception
    try{
        SimpleDateFormat form = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MM/yyyy");
        Date date = form.parse("31/11/2009");
    }catch(ParseException e){
        //deal with parse error
    }

    Why not? Just stating you can't doesn't provide us with much information....did you look at the link I provided? Did you import the class or parent library?
