My post disappeared - date format problem

Hi all :-)

My post on weird date formatting disappeared from my list, so if this a duplicate post, I apologize.

I'm having trouble getting a date to format as just "MM/dd"

I don't care what the year is, I get that information first, then need to format the data as MM/dd to look for the Month and day to check if it is a Holiday. If it is a Holiday, and falls on a Monday (I can get the dddd to format just fine!), then I need to make the due date fall on the Tuesday after the Holiday. I've tried:

ls_due_dt = ld_due_dt.ToStr ing() then, using
String.Format(" MM/dd", ls_due_dt)

I've also tried Format(ls_due_d t, "MM/dd") which just gives me a literal string of "MM/dd". Any suggestions? TIA

Coleen
