System.DateTime.Now.Day.ToString("DD")

System.DateTime.Now.Day.ToString("DD") is not working.  I want to return 03, no 3 for day 3

Try

MessageBox.Show(Format(Now.Day, "00"))

HTH :)

for some reason, it's putting dd in the string such as 04dd for this:

System.DateTime.Now.ToString("MM") & System.DateTime.Now.Day.ToString("dd")

why is the month working but not the day in this case?
Mikal613Commented:
Dim MyDate As New DateTime(now)
Dim MyString As String = MyDate.ToString("dd")
dba123Author Commented:
why can't I do it as I did the month?
dba123Author Commented:
System.DateTime.Now.ToString("MM") works
dba123Author Commented:
Dim MyDate As New DateTime(now)

Error: Value of type 'Date' cannot be converted to 'Long'.

I'd still prefer to do it this way, just like I did for month: System.DateTime.Now.Day.ToString("dd")

System.DateTime.Now.Day.ToString("dd")

should be:

System.DateTime.Now.ToString("dd")
