Experts,

I need a date in the format yyyyMMdd using the following:
String valDate_yyyyMMdd = ""+valuationDate.getYear()+""+valuationDate.getMonth()+""+valuationDate.getDayOfMonth()
but it returns 2007127 instead of 20071207

Please help!

Thanks,
Margin_Walker

Why not use SimpleDateFormat?

SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyyMMdd");
String result = sdf.format(  your_date );

import java.util.*;

public class Test
{
  public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception
  {
    DateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyyMMdd");;
    Date date1 = new Date(2007-1900, 12-1, 7);
    System.out.println(df.format(date1));
  }
