Apologies, I tried to pear down the post and left that out accidentally.

I had also tried:

logdatepattern = logdate

and

logdatepattern = logdate.to_s

Here is the original post, fixed:

This does not work:

logdate = "#{@calendar1.year}-" + (@calendar1.month + 1).to_s +
"-#{@calendar1.day}"

puts "Getting log for #{logdate}"
File.open("rdpconnect.log").each do |line|
    if line.match(logdate)
        puts line
    end
end


However, this does:

logdate = "2007-07-30"
puts "Getting log for #{logdate}"
File.open("rdpconnect.log").each do |line|
    if line.match(logdate)
        puts line
    end
end


The format of logdate appears the same in both instances. What am I 
missing?

Thanks,
