I have the below SQL Insert statement in my WinApp and I would like to make the formatting (mm/dd/yyyy) instead of the default mm/dd/yyy hh:mm

I am trying to do this an easy way without having to create a declaration first, because i know I can do it like so:

        Dim strdate As DateTime
        strdate = System.DateTime.Now
        Dim displayString As String
        displayString = Format(strdate, "MM/dd/yyyy")

\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\INSERT STATEMENT\\\\\\\\\\\\\

        strSQLInsert = strSQLInsert & "'" & Trim(System.DateTime.Now) & "',"

Try : convert(varchar(10), convert(datetime, getdate(), 103), 103)

try this, it will give you a date formated like "1/1/2006"

strSQLInsert = strSQLInsert & "'" & System.DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString  & "',"

You can also use ToString() to format the DateTime however you want:

    strSQLInsert = strSQLInsert & "'" & System.DateTime.Now.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy") & "',"

They all worked, but I actually am using Idle_Minds.  I am going to award everyone points though.  Thanks for the help!!!!  I get confused sometimes when messing around with formats.
