    Default Need logic ....!!!

    Hi ,

    Requirement:-
    Ex: Today if some document comes to me , I need to iterate a string(document-id) with initial value of "000001" till the end of day. The 1st document will get "000001" as id and 2nd as "000002" and so on........till the end of day, if 10 documents had come...the final value of id must be "000010".

    When next day starts and again if document comes on that day, it is treated as 1st document for that day and its id must start with "000001". just like a repetition of above scenario.

    need logic for this requirement. Awaiting your response!

    Thanks!!!

    Can you explain what your problem is?
    Counting from 1 shouldn't be a problem
    Is the problem detecting when a day starts so the program can reset the counter to 1?

    What part?
    to increment a counter:[code]
    counter++; // add 1 to counter[code]

    How do you want to detect a new day?
    One way would be to save the start day's value in a variable. When adding to the counter check it the current day is the same as the start day, if it is not, reset the counter and change start day's value to the current day.

    When the program is started, the start date variable is set to the current day.
    When a new doc comes in, check if the current date is the same as the start date that was saved when the program was started.
    If the current date is different from the start date, then set the counter to 1 and set the start date equal to the current date.

    When is the program stopped? How long does it execute for?
    Does the start date need to be saved in a file?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    once that document details are stored in database along with its id, the program stops. no need of saving into file

    Is the problem solved now with the use of a database?
