Question To convert

I have a source file with 'Aug 1 2004' kind format.
I need to search the records with certain period, like from Aug 1 2004 to Sep 20 2004.
Can someone give me some ideas what I should start with?

ThanX !!

Knowing what format the data is stored in would be a good start (if not an ASCII file, which I'm assuming to be the case here). Then what scripting/etc. languages you know would be the next step.

Reccomendations thus far: read the ascii file into an SQL table (don't ask me how. sample data required). Use SQL to run your searches. Take two and call your family physician in the morning.

When a program executes, each command executes one after the other, top-to-bottom. This is known as inconsequential control flow.
