Get yesterday date


In VB6 I used Now() -1 to get yesterday, but it's not allowed in vb.NET. Is
there a similar way to do it in vb.Net?

Thanks in advance

Hi Li Pang,

You can use the following code:

Dim oTimeSpan As New System.TimeSpan (1,0,0,0)
Dim oDate As System.DateTime = System.DateTime .Now.Substract( oTimeSpan)

and oDate should contain yesterdays date...

Li Pang,

You mean this?
Dim yesterday As DateTime = Now.AddDays(-1)

I hope this helps,

As others have posted, Now.AddDays(-1) is the literal translation of
the VB6 expression Now() - 1.

But if you want *yesterday*, rather than *this time yesterday*, you
should be using Today, not Now.
