I'm using C++/CLI.  Can anyone help me out with some code to convert the String "2006/07/13 12:00:00 PM" in to the String "20060713T1120000Z"

Use DateTime class

.NET 2003 this can be done like this, try the same way in VS 2005

DateTime *pDateNow = &DateTime::Parse("2006/07/13 12:00:00 PM");
                         CultureInfo * MyCI = new CultureInfo(S"en-US", false);
                         DateTimeFormatInfo* myDTFI = MyCI -> DateTimeFormat;
                         String *dateFormat = myDTFI->UniversalSortableDateTimePattern;
                         dateFormat = dateFormat->Replace("-","");
                         dateFormat = dateFormat->Replace(":","");
                         dateFormat = dateFormat->Replace("'","");
                         dateFormat = dateFormat->Replace(" ","T");
                         String *newdate= pDateNow->ToString(dateFormat);

Awesome, that worked! Thank you!

I had to change it to manage code for my application as follows:
DateTime ^pDateNow = DateTime::Parse("2006/07/13 12:00:00 PM");
            CultureInfo ^MyCI = gcnew CultureInfo("en-US", false);
            DateTimeFormatInfo^ myDTFI = MyCI->DateTimeFormat;
            String ^dateFormat = myDTFI->UniversalSortableDateTimePattern;
            dateFormat = dateFormat->Replace("-","");
            dateFormat = dateFormat->Replace(":","");
            dateFormat = dateFormat->Replace("'","");
            dateFormat = dateFormat->Replace(" ","T");
            String ^newdate= pDateNow->ToString(dateFormat);
