ActiveRecord Object check based on Date field

Hi All,

    I have a quick question related to activerecord exist. Can we do a
activerecord object exist method with a date field.
Like

  Weather.exists?(:weather_date => 22/09/11 )

Can we do like above. Please clarify me.

Yes (you should use a date object or a string containing a date in a
format the database will understand) The only caveat is that if the
column is actually a datetime column then you need to check for the
range of datetimes that make up that particular day)

Fred

Weather.exists?(:weather_date => 22/09/11 )

if data is a string containing '22/09/11'

Check whether it works..

Weather.exists?(:weather_date => data.to_date )

or check

date rdoc clearly for correct format
