My code
class purchasevchr {

public static String inputFile = "purchase.txt";//Input file
purchase pfr = new purchase();

public void formatFile() {
{

try {
FileInputStream in = new FileInputStream(inputFile);
BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(in));
String strLine;

String regEx1 = "(\\d+/)";//date format is matched here
Pattern regEx1P = Pattern.compile(regEx1);

while ((strLine = br.readLine()) != null) {

System.out.println(strLine);//line by line printing
}

} catch (Exception e) {
System.out.println("Exception " + e);
}
}

}

public class sample{

public static void main(String args[]){
purchasevchr ob=new purchasevchr();
ob.formatFile();
}
}
i tried with the code
/*

import java.io.BufferedReader;
import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.InputStreamReader;
import java.util.regex.Matcher;
import java.util.regex.Pattern;
public class expense1 {

public static String inputFile = "expense.txt";

public void formatFile() {

try
{
FileInputStream in = new FileInputStream(inputFile);
BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(in));
String strLine;

String regEx1 = "([0-9]/)";
Pattern regEx1P = Pattern.compile(regEx1);

System.out.println("Date " + "Bill " + "noBill" + "DateDescription" + " Purpose" +
"Qty" + "Dist " + "Rate/unitAmt" + "Remark");

while((strLine = br.readLine())!= null)
{
Matcher match1 = regEx1P.matcher(strLine);

if (match1.find())
{
System.out.println(strLine);
}

//System.out.println(strLine);
}
}
catch (Exception e)
{
System.out.println("Ouch! " + e);
}
}

public static void main(String[] args) {
expense1 exp = new expense1();
exp.formatFile();

}
}
output i am getting is:

"Received Date:12/05/08"...even i ried with string split('' ");but no use..

can you help me in this

3. If the way you have formated the date is fix, you can use following code.

Java Code:
```    public void formatFile() {
try {
FileInputStream in = new FileInputStream(inputFile);
BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(in));
String strLine;

String regEx1 = "([0-9]/)";
Pattern regEx1P = Pattern.compile(regEx1);

System.out.println("Date " + "Bill " + "noBill" + "DateDescription" + " Purpose" +
"Qty" + "Dist " + "Rate/unitAmt" + "Remark");

while((strLine = br.readLine())!= null) {
Matcher match1 = regEx1P.matcher(strLine);
if (match1.find()) {
getFirstPart(strLine);
}
//System.out.println(strLine);
}
}
catch (Exception e) {
System.out.println("Ouch! " + e);
}
}

private void getFirstPart(String str) {
if(str.charAt(2) == '/') {
System.out.println(str);
}
}```
