you need provide the file name format and date format.

Give some samples to us.

eg: $date1 :20090301
$ date2: 20090502

archivefile dir : /projects/home01/archive/2009/

file names:

20090311_archival.txt
20090312_archival.txt
20090313_archival.txt
20090314_archival.txt

(here is small examle there may be so many files to transfer from archive dir)

need a script to move the files from archive dir to current direct

Code:
Not tested:

#! /usr/bin/bash

BASE=/projects/home01/archive
DEST=/tmp

for file in `find $BASE -type f -name "*.txt"`
do
   date=$(echo $FILE|awk -F[\/_] '{print $(NF-1)}')
   if [ "$date" > "$1" && "$date" < "$2" ] ; then 
       mv $file $DEST/$file
   fi
