Date Formatting problem

Hi,

I have an ASPX page with a textbox where the user enters a
date.

I have a variable of tyope date that I populate from teh
form
d

dtMyDate = Request.Form("t xMyDate")

I then call a function that formats my date.

Public Function FormatDate(ByVa l dtMyDate as date) as Date

FormatDate = Format(dtMyDate , "mm/dd/yyyy")
End Function
If I pass in the date 01/01/2003, it formats it as
00/01/2003.

Any ideas why this is.

Thanks,
Kerri.

Your function does not really do any formatting, since it returns a
"Date" datatype, which is not formatted. If it returned a string, then
it should work.

I also thought the correct syntax was:
return Format(dtMyDate , "mm/dd/yyyy")

If it compiles, I guess its fine, but I like the "return" syntax better
than the old VB6 syntax that you are using, mainly because it is easier
to read, and makes renaming the function much simpler.

Hello

I saw this and found it works perfect.

Dim rightNow As DateTime = DateTime.Now
Dim sDateTime As String

sDateTime = rightNow.ToStri ng("MM/dd/yyyy")

"mm" in date format string means minute, not month. Month is what yop used,
MM.

Date problem. Using non American date formats with Microsoft Access and Visual Basic. I set my regional settings to English(Ireland) or English(United Kingdom) and my date appears in Access as DD/MM/YYYY. However if the day is less than 12 the day then becomes the month e.g. 3 July 2003 is displayed in Visual Basic as 7 March 2003. So if I have two records with different dates as such 6/8/03 and 15/8/03 the first date is 8 June 2003...

Hi there, My problem is the following: When I assign a custom formatted Date & Time to a Date variable it loses it’s formatting. Ex. 2005-06-07 15:46 now when I assign this to a variable of type Date or DateTime this becomes 2005/06/07 03:46:00 The same code work flawlessly on various other machines, thus I presume this is settings related. I know that the Time function in VB.NET reads from the system time, which you set in...

I am binding dates to a textbox, the date is stored in SQL in a datetime field.

I have a gridview that's being populated from an access db query.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
