I have a boudfield in a Gridview that looks like this:
<asp:BoundField DataField="from" HeaderText="Fr&#229;n" SortExpression="from" DataFormatString="{0:D}" />

I would like to display the date 2006-11-01, but now it also oncludes minutes and seconds like, 2006-11-01 00:00:00. I thought I used the short format date but it doesn't work.

if that won't work, I am afraid you'll have to change the BoundColumn to a TemplateCOlumn
