Here is a DataGrid example:

<asp:DataGrid id=DataGrid1 style="Z-INDEX: 101; LEFT: 44px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 60px" runat="server" Width="492px" Height="192px" AutoGenerateColumns="False">
  <AlternatingItemStyle CssClass="alternatingstyle">
  <ItemStyle CssClass="itemstyle">
  <HeaderStyle CssClass="headerstyle">
    <asp:BoundColumn DataField="name" HeaderText="Name"></asp:BoundColumn>
    <asp:BoundColumn DataField="address" HeaderText="Address"></asp:BoundColumn>
    <asp:BoundColumn DataField="current_date" HeaderText="Current Date" DataFormatString="{0:dd MMM yyyy}"></asp:BoundColumn>
    <asp:BoundColumn DataField="amount_due" HeaderText="Amount Due" DataFormatString="{0:C}"></asp:BoundColumn>

Look at the BoundColumn declarations, and the DataFormatString formats:

Data Examples:
(1) {0:dd MMM yyyy} = 12 Apr 2006
(2) {0:C} = $1268.60

You can specify these values through the 'Property Builder' for the DataGrid.
