DateTime d = DateTime.Now;
string s = d.ToString("MM-dd-yy"));

Dim d as DateTime
Dim s as string

d = DateTime.Now

I have a SQLdatareader with a date in it. Somehoe the conversion fails when i try to use this syntax

lDR("fld_dt_TransmitDateOut").ToString("dd-MM-yy")      Run-time exception thrown : System.InvalidCastException - Conversion from string "dd-MM-yy" to type 'Integer' is not valid.      
DateTime structire doesn't hace ToString(Integer) method. This means that lDR("fld_dt_TransmitDateOut") field type is not DateTime in this case. You need to check what is it's type - maybe null.
