So , you want a script which runs and checks only the "Date" part from the file and mail to the user . ( the sample mail something like this : Raja -> Shift1 ) ?

Hi Panyam.,
Ya, u r partly right ., validation needs to be done not only for "Date" part but also for the "name" part since there can be more than one person in a shift.. so there should be some scenario wherin u can get the name and compute their EMPID and by using that u can send a mail to a particular user!!!
