Hey,  I am retrieving data from sqlServer 2000 with ADO.NET using the dataReader. I have the following statement:
If myReader.IsDBNull(9) = False Then
    UpdateRequest.RenewalDT = myReader.GetDateTime(9).ToShortDateString     'Renewal Date
Else
    UpdateRequest.RenewalDT = String.Empty
End If

I get the following message:
System.Data.SqlTypes.SqlNullValueException: Data is Null. This method or property cannot be called on Null values.

What is the best way to check the datatime column for null values?

Thanks,

Joe
