it depends on the date format/declaration

if the dates have the same format/same declaration
and the order is yyyy,mm,dd

then a straight comparison will be ok

if the format/declaration is different then You must convert to the same
format

Just a clarification,
when the date is a character string the separators ( if there ) must be the same

yyyy-mm-dd will be different from yyyy/mm/dd

Mahua,

Most of the shops maintain inhouse DATE COMPARISION subroutine/tool. Speak with your peers, they might offer some help.
