hi, i have a problemhere. this is the data i have in my table.

Dob
19/4/1977
26/12/1927
23/3/1958
.
.
.


And this is my form,

input.jsp
======
<select name="dob">
   <option value="01"> Jan</option>
   <option value="02"> Feb</option>
   <option value="03">March </option>
   <option value="04"> April</option>
.
.
.
</select>

confirm.jsp
========
<%
String dob =request.getParameter("dob");
SimpleDateFormat df = new SimpelDateFormat("MM");

  Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
   conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:myDSN");
PreparedStatement  ps = conn.prepareStatement( "SELECT * FROM Customer where dob= ? "
    ps.setDate( 1, new java.sql.Date( df.parse(startdate).getTime()));


** My problem is i don't know how to minimun the result when it's only match the middle character of the month... equal with the user's input...

User can only enter the month of the year, whereby the date stored in is in dd/MM/yyyy. So, what is the exact or correct SQL statment that i should use.. please guide me.

Can't you do:

PreparedStatement  ps = conn.prepareStatement( "SELECT * FROM Customer where month( dob ) = ?" ) ;
ps.setInt( 1, Integer.parseInt( dob ) ) ;

TimYates, you mean this is the correct way?

<%
String dob =request.getParameter("dob");
SimpleDateFormat df = new SimpelDateFormat("MM");

 Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
  conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:myDSN");
PreparedStatement  ps = conn.prepareStatement( "SELECT * FROM Customer where month( dob ) = ?" ) ;
ps.setInt( 1, Integer.parseInt( dob ) ) ;
%>

how does it work? It's prompt me error when i complie the code. Saying
customer_0005fdo_0005fresult$jsp.java [83:1] cannot resolve symbol
symbol  : variable dob
location: class org.apache.jsp.customer_0005fdo_0005fresult$jsp
                    ps.setInt( 1, Integer.parseInt( dob ) ) ;
                                                    ^
1 error

The "dob" is my table field and the "month" is the user entry. and this is my original code:

<%
String dob =request.getParameter("dob");
SimpleDateFormat df = new SimpelDateFormat("MM");

 Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
  conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:myDSN");
PreparedStatement  ps = conn.prepareStatement( "SELECT * FROM Customer where dob= ? "
   ps.setDate( 1, new java.sql.Date( df.parse(startdate).getTime()));

Can you show the complete code for me?

Should do it...

It uses the SQL "MONTH" function in the WHERE clause, so that it should match all rows where the month entered (dob) equals the month of the dob field...

ASSUMING!!

the "dob" field in your database is a Date field or a Timestamp field...

I hope it is...

Otherwise, you will need something like:

PreparedStatement  ps = conn.prepareStatement( "SELECT * FROM Customer WHERE dob LIKE ?" ) ;
ps.setString( 1, "%/" + dob + "/%" ) ;

Tim, thanks for your reply. NullPointer Exception. Surprise...
this is the code i changed.

RawData
=======
Dob
11/27/2003
11/15/2003
11/12/2003
11/28/2003
11/17/1999
11/5/2003
11/28/2003
11/27/2003
11/12/2003
11/20/2003
11/26/2003
11/19/2003
11/6/2003
11/20/2003
11/5/2003
11/12/2003
12/16/2003

input page
=======
.
    <tr><td>Month : </td>
<td>
    <select name="month">
        <option value="01">O1</option>
        <option value="11">11</option>
    </select>
</td>
.

result page
========
String dob=request.getParameter("month");
try {
Connection conn=null;
ResultSet rs=null;
if (dob!=null) {
    System.out.println(dob);
   Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
   conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:myDSN");
    PreparedStatement  ps = conn.prepareStatement( "SELECT * FROM Customer where MONTH(Dob) = ?" ) ;
    ps.setInt( 1, Integer.parseInt( dob ) ) ;

while (rs.next()) {
    out.println(rs.getString("Customer"));
    out.println("<BR>");
}

} else { out.println("Null Value"); }


} catch (Exception sqle) {
                       sqle.printStackTrace();
    }

********

But this is the error i get. And i still can see the month is contain value. The "Dob" is a date type.

You never execute the statement, and get the resultset back!!

....
ps.setInt( 1, Integer.parseInt( dob ) ) ;

// NEED THIS
rs = ps.executeQuery() ;

while (rs.next()) {
....

Don't forget to close your connection, and statement too:

String dob=request.getParameter("month");
Connection conn=null;
PreparedStatement  ps = null ;
ResultSet rs=null;
try
{
    if (dob!=null)
    {
        System.out.println(dob);
        Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
        conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:myDSN");
        ps = conn.prepareStatement( "SELECT * FROM Customer where MONTH(Dob) = ?" ) ;
        ps.setInt( 1, Integer.parseInt( dob ) ) ;

        rs = ps.executeQuery() ;

        while (rs.next())
        {
            out.println(rs.getString("Customer"));
            out.println("<BR>");
        }
    }
    else
    {
        out.println("Null Value");
    }
}
catch (Exception sqle)
{
    sqle.printStackTrace();
}
finally
{
    try { if( rs != null ) rs.close() ; } catch( Exception ex ) { }
    try { if( ps != null ) ps.close() ; } catch( Exception ex ) { }
    try { if( conn != null ) conn.close() ; } catch( Exception ex ) { }
}

No worries :-)

Hee hee, I make mistakes like that all the time ;-)

I find a walk in the fresh air with a cup of coffee does wonders for finding easy mistakes ;-)

Good luck with it!!
