it seems no matter what I try I cannot return correct date values from my select statement, fo example I have a calender
control which the user selects the date then click a button to run

string startdate = string.Format("#{0:dd/MM/yyyy}#", Calendar1.SelectedDate);
select....WHERE ([dbx].[Arrival Date]= " + startdate + ")";

so i select 01/07/06 but returns 07/01/06

You must either change your startdate string to MM/dd/yyyy or change the dateformat on the database with
set dateformat dmy
before the select

Hi,
I am getting it in the correct it in the correct format. I tried the same code that you have specified. I dont think you have any problem with your SelectedDate statement.

Thanks,
