I have a column in excel storing information as date like "1-Jan-2010". I want to read this date and store it in database.
I am done with reading the excel, facing problem specifically for date field. While reading the date it comes returns a number, which is not at all linked to the date.
An alternative is to treat it as string by appending " ' " (i.e. to treat it as string and then do string manipulations) to all rows before i actually read it, but i dont want to do this.

Please suggest.
