Date raw date time

I have a value in a string array that is {3/15/1976}

When I do a tostring with a short date it changes that to 15/03/1976
Is there a way I can get just the raw text out of the string? Without it giving it to me as a date?

Hi latrotter2,

If you have a DateTime object and want to the string value to have a certain format, you must pass the format to the .ToString() Methos. Example:

[Visual Basic]
Dim tempDateString As String = DateTime.Today.ToString("M/d/yyyy")
string tempDateString = DateTime.Today.ToString("M/d/yyyy");

Hope this helps.

You are using a "string array". Do you mean a DateTime because the ToString() method will not reformat an array using date formatting rules. DateTime.ToString() converts to a string looking like a date.

You can pass any desired date format into the ToString() method of the DateTime object.
For example, if the DateTime is in the variable myDate:

Dates, Dates, Dates!
Hello all... I am in the process of building an appointment system, and I am trying to see if I can get some pointers on which way to go on this. The first version of this appointment system was very lo-tech, and it stored all of the possible dates/times in the database. Once a user booked an appointment, their information was logged to that date/time, and then that date/time would no longer show in the list of possible openings. This was great for a temporary fix, but with having to pre-populate all of the dates/times, the system would eventually have to be updated to continue on pa...

date/time or date and time
I am setting up an SQL database and I will need to get differences in dates. For example I have a start date, start time, completion date and completion time and I want to get the difference between the start and completion. Would it be better to have one field with both date and time in it, or better to have a date field and a time field? Even though I have already started setting up the tables with seperate fields for date and time I am now leaning toward one field with date/time in it. (Only because that is the way I had to do it when setting up an Excel spreadsheet for a similar ta...

hi i have a client written in delphi the backend is written in java (webservice) when fetching a date field from the db, through java to delphi (TXSDateTime class), for some reason the date changes. in the db: 30/07/2009 00:00:00 in delphi: xsdatetime.asdatetime = 29/07/2009 23:00:00 (1 hour before) in delphi xsdatetime.asutcdatetime = 29/07/2009 21:00:00 (3 hours before) i guess it's a matter of timezones but all we want is simply to fetch the same date as it appears in the DB what are we missing? thanks amos szust wrote: > hi > > i have a client written in d...

just Time or date portion of a date/time field

Hello, If the field is defined as a DATE and you do: select datefield+1 from mytable Does the ODBC API (actually ASA 9.02 backend) return a field that is DATETIME or a DATE field? It is messing up my compiled application and seems to be coming back as DATETIME. Thank you. -Robert You are correct, the value is being returned as a TIMESTAMP. You can verify this through using the EXPRTYPE() builtin function, as in select exprtype('select datefield+1 from mytable', 1) from dummy which will return TIMESTAMP. Exprtype is documented in the help. You alm...
