Hi Sunil,

In VB.NET dates and times are stored in a DateTime structure. The epoch
for these is 00:00:00.0000000, January 1, 0001.

DateTimes have a Ticks value which is the number of 100-nanosecond
intervals which have elapsed since then.

You can convert to and from by getting the Ticks value, and by adding
Ticks to an existing DateTime.

Try the following:

Dim dt0 As DateTime = #12/25/2003#
Dim dt1 As DateTime = DateTime.MinValue
Dim dt2 As DateTime = DateTime.MinValue
dt2 = dt2.AddTicks (dt0.Ticks)
MsgBox (dt0.ToString & ", " & dt0.Ticks & vbCrLf _
& dt1.ToString & ", " & dt1.Ticks & vbCrLf _
& dt2.ToString & ", " & dt2.Ticks & vbCrLf)

Note that dtVar.AddTicks (23) does <not> add 23 Ticks to dtVar but
produces a new DateTime which has the sum of the Ticks.
