Note that month starts with 0,1,2,....
You may change these 2 lines:

 Calendar cal = new GregorianCalendar(year, month-1, day);
 month = cal.get(Calendar.MONTH)+1;

I have the following method in my class:

        private int newDate(int date, int increment, int targetYear) {
                int retdate = 0;
                if (date > 0) {
                        int year = date / 10000;
                        int month = (date - (year * 10000)) / 100;
                        int day = date - ((year * 10000) + (month * 100));
                        year = targetYear;
Calendar cal = new GregorianCalendar(year, month, day);
                        cal.add(Calendar.DATE, increment);
                        year = cal.get(Calendar.YEAR);
                        month = cal.get(Calendar.MONTH);
                        day = cal.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);
                        retdate = (year * 10000) + (month * 100) + day;
                return retdate;

It should take the date and decrease by the amount of the increment using the targetYear as the year of the date instead. Here's the problem. I sent it the following parms: date = 20050502; increment = -2, targetYear = 2007. When it gets to the cal.add(Calendar.DATE, increment) the value of the date is 2007/05/02 and I want to decrease it by 2. It returns 2007/04/31 wtf? There is no such date. Is this an issue with the calendar class? Thanks,
