hi, i have 2 datetimepickers on my form, but i would like the first one's default date to be the first day of the current month.
so in my form_load i tried
DateTimePicker1.Value = (" & Now.Year & " / " & Now.Month & " / 1)
but i get the error
Conversion from 'Double' to 'Date' requires calling the 'Date.FromOADate' method.
and the complete section in brackets is underlined
