 What's the error message you are getting? It seems to me that you need to leave a space before the WHERE clause:

strSQL = "select * from Training" + "where EMPNO like '"+ EmpID + "'";

  is done:

strSQL = "select * from Training" + " where EMPNO like '"+ EmpID + "'";

  Hope it helps.

 I guess it is a standard format of the DATE column of the database. Most of the columns just expect a standard form of DATE (yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss). If it is not there then they fill it with trailing zeros. I guess that's what's happening to you as well. I am not sure how you can change it. You could either change the format of the database column itself or tokenize the String and get the first token only. If the String that holds the "1997-01-12 00:00:00" is named "date" (i.e. date = "1997-01-12 00:00:00", then you could do something like:

StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer(date);
String newDate = st.nextToken();

  Then the "nextDate" variable will hold the 1997-01-12" value. You will have to import the java.util.StringTokenizer class.

  Hope it helps.

  By the way, what was the problem the first time?

Hi
  Aftree you retrieve the value you can use the DateFormat class to format the returning string.

SimpleDateFormat formatter=new SimpleDateFormat("MM/dd/yyyy");
String formattedDate=formatter.format(<your string>);
