Just use the DateTime.ToString(string format) method. I don't know what format you need exactly, but here are some examples:

DateTime dt = DateTime.Now;

dt.ToString ("dd.MM.yyyy") -> 10.12.2003
dt.ToString ("dd MMM yyyy") -> 10 Dec 2003
dt.ToString ("d") -> 12/10/2003
dt.ToString ("D") -> Wednesday, December 10, 2003
etc. etc.

For more examples and information have a look here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/cpref/html/frlrfsystemdatetimeclasstostringtopic3.asp

DateTime.Today


DateTime.Now includes the current time, whereas today is just the date (the hour, min, second & millisecond are set to zero with the Today property)

string dt = DatTime.Now.ToString();
dt.Substring(0,10);

andrew67,

If you want just the date as a string, just use...

string dt=DateTime.Today.ToString("d");

This will return your date in the format specific to your user's machine.
