select convert(datetime, '11/21/2005', 101)

alternatively:
SET DATEFORMAT MDY
select convert(datetime, '11/21/2005' )

if the user gives the date in the format you told in the question, then you simply put that value into the sql as I showed above.

Besides I dont want to change the date format of sql server ...
Example...user has given
05/02/2005
he mentions
MM/DD/YYYY....
WHEN I CONVERT the string  IT TO A DATE
IT shows 05/02/2005 which according to system date is DD/MM/YYYY AND WHEN I SAVE IN SQL

YYYY/MM/DD IT gets saved as 2005/02/05 which is wrong as i expect 2005/05/02
How can I do it?

Hi,
Sorry for the delay..
I have a column in datagridview for entering  date format
 Me.clmDTF.DataPropertyName = "DATA_TYPE_FORMAT"
        Me.clmDTF.HeaderText = "SPECIAL TYPE"
        Me.clmDTF.Name = "clmDTF"
I am loading a file in database depending on the  columns given.
In file the data is:
23/12/2004   xys  fgfg  

Query
   strsql = "Insert into " & frmmain.txttablename.Text & "( refno," & frmmain.txtdateText & ")VALUES(@refno,@" & frmmain.txtdate.Text & ")"

                        Dim command As New SqlCommand(strsql, cndb)

                        If fieldname <> "" Then
                            command.Parameters.AddWithValue("@refno", fieldname)
                            command.Parameters.AddWithValue("@" & frmmain.txtdate.Text & "", frmmain.txtfielddate.Text)


                            command.ExecuteNonQuery()
                        End If



       '''''''''''''''''''
 & frmmain.txtprmt.Text & is for the formated date.


Regards.

just try to change the strsql contents like this:

strsql = "SET DATEFORMAT DMY   Insert into " & frmmain.txttablename.Text & "( refno," & frmmain.txtdateText & ")VALUES(@refno,@" & frmmain.txtdate.Text & ")"

Hi,
To answer your original question:

Dim strMyDate As String
strMyDate = Format(DateTime.ParseExact("11-21-2005", "MM-dd-yyyy", _
Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture), "yyyy-MM-dd")

This will convert from MM-dd-yyyy to yyyy-MM-dd

To apply to your code, just replace the example date "11-21-2005" with frmmain.txtdate.Text and SQL to be like:

   strsql = "Insert into " & frmmain.txttablename.Text & "( refno," & frmmain.txtdate.Text & ")VALUES(@refno, '" & strMyDate & "')"

I am not sure about your SQL, but make sure date goes like '2005-11-21' - (within apostrophes - as I can remember).

Hope this will help, Good luck.

Hi r1937,

It works great only if MM is in Uppercase but, the user can enter it in lower case in that case it takes the minutes...is there any method in either case it will work correct for foramttting the date.

What about taking the entered date format into a string and then do a validation check or write code to convert mm to MM.

I am not familiar with Oracle, but most simple SQL will be the same.
As I think Oracle dates goes like "dd-MMM-yyyy". Again I do not know Oracle.
