Hey guys,

I have some code in vb6:
        date = CLng(cdate("10/7/2004")
And it returns 38284
That is what i want to do in .net


If i try this in VB.Net, it says I cannot convert date to long. WHAT DO I DO?

Dim intDateSerial As Long = DateTime.Parse("10/7/2004").ToOADate

No, I meant Integer.  In VB6, Long = 32-bit, and in VB.NET Integer = 32.
