I usually find that if I try and SELECT something in a database and get a result back, I can pretty much say that what I SELECTed exists in the database.... So, what is it that you have tried for yourself that is not working?

Hello friend,

you can go with this way...

before saving record to your database, you need to fire select query to you database with having where condition and pass selected data as where condition parameter, if any record is selected it means there is also a record having same date in your database, so then you can popup a message that date is already exist in database and skip process of inserting data.

Or this way....

You can specify unique constrain on your date column, so every time while you are going to insert data and if already same data is exists then it will throw unique constraint violated error, that means you need to show your message that selected date is already exist in database.
