I read in a csv file with multiple columns with one date column in the beginning. When you open the file, the date looks like 5/16/1997. However, once the file is read, the date string becomes "1997-05-16".

When I call SimpleDateFormat.parse("1997-05-16"), it throws a ParseException.

any reason why the date format is altered when read, and why SimpleDateFormat can not recognize the date?
