Find the number of files older than 1 day from a dir

Hello All,

I need to write a script/command which can find out the number of .csv files residing in a directory older than 1 day. The output should come with
datewise (means for each date how many files are there).

I've this command, but this command gives the total number of files. It's not listing the number of files date wise.:-(

Code:
find /stage/primed/ -mtime +1 -type f -name "*.csv" | wc -l >> /home/older1day.out 2>&1


Thanks,
Naresh

It's not running rohon. I tried running your command differently.
Code:
find /home/npradhan/naresh -type f -name "*.csv" -exec ll {}
find: missing argument to `-exec'

find /home/npradhan/naresh -type f -name "*.csv" -exec ll {} \;
find: ll: No such file or directory

Can you please just explain me this part- -exec ll {} \
I am confused about it.

Thanks,
Naresh

I just ran the command to test it (removing -mtime +1 option), failed.
Code:
find /home/npradhan/naresh -type f -name "*.csv" -exec "ls -lrt" {} \;
find: ls -lrt: No such file or directory
find: ls -lrt: No such file or directory

find /home/npradhan/naresh -type f -name "*.csv" -exec ls -l {} \;

It's giving output like this-
Code:
find /home/npradhan/naresh -type f -name "*.csv" -exec ls -l {} \;
-rw-r--r-- 1 npradhan users 0 2010-12-16 11:06 /home/npradhan/naresh/jj.csv
-rw-r--r-- 1 npradhan users 0 2010-12-16 11:06 /home/npradhan/naresh/g.csv

Where as we want output like-
Code:
Date                  <directory>                      <number of files> 
2010-12-16            /home/npradhan/naresh            2
