I want to read a file if it is created between a particular period.The user selects the from and to fields.We compare these two fields with the date in the file.

This is what I am currently doing...

if(rD.after(toDate) && rD.before(tfromDate)){

read the file

}

If the user enters july 01 2004 as the from field, the files are being read from july 02 2004. Can you please help me with this issue?

Thanks,

It is still not reading the file created on that partucular date.

This is what I am using

  rD : Wed Sep 01 00:00:00 CDT 2004 // the file created on the same date as fromDate is not being read.
 fromDate : Wed Sep 01 00:00:00 CDT 2004
 ToDate : Thu Sep 30 23:59:59 CDT 2004

if ((rD.compareTo(toDDDDt)<=0) && (rD.compareTo(frDDDDt)>=0))

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

can you run this and post the output:

System.out.println(rD);
System.out.println(frDDDDt);
System.out.println(toDDDDt);
System.out.println(rD.compareTo(toDDDDt));
System.out.println(rD.compareTo(frDDDDt));

the date isn't actually between those two dates, it is 219 msecs before frDDDDt .

This is how I set the fromDate

cs.set(yyyy, mm, dd, 0, 0, 0);

Could you please share your thoughts on the changes that needs to take place to resolve the above mentioned issue.

I want the milliseconds to be a default value of 0 all the time for the fromDate. Can you please suggest?

Thanks
