Hi,
I have some trouble working with date in asp.net and visual studio 2005.
I use a development environment at home with an oracle 8i server and iis5 from windows 2000 server
I create a page that use a sqldatasource to query the oracle database and to update
a row in the timesheet table.
I use the gridview to do so with an update command, the date field in the EditItemTemplate of my gridview is defined like this:
<EditItemTemplate>
 <asp:TextBox Width="60px" ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Font-Size="8pt" Text='<%# Bind("FORDATE", "{0:dd-MMM-yy}") %>'></asp:TextBox>
</EditItemTemplate>

All update are succefull and I well see the date like 01-mar-07 (The Oracle database need to receive date format in dd-MMM-yy to accept modification)

The strange thing is when I upload my work on the production server at the office, when I try to do the same update with the gridview, an error occured because the date displayed in my aspx page is not any more 01-mar-07 but 01-mars-07 (looks like french/belgium format).
If I rewrite the date field in 01-mar-07, the update is going ok; but if I leave it like displayed ->error 'not a valid month'

Would it be possible I need to change something on the IIS server at my office ?
or in the web.config ?

Thanks for your help

You should check the culture setting for the page/application/IIS and check that it is in english

dd-MMM-yy - is not a correct date format picture.

In order to get date in 01-mar-07 format: you should use dd-mon-yy picture

I first try the culture settings on the IIS and get rid of my problem,
indeed the encoding was not the same on each server.

But as I am not an expert, I am also interested by sujith80 comment, actually
I use dd-MMM-yy and it works lika a charm, should I change to dd-mon-yy ?

To be honest talentium I've never seen dd-mon-yy in asp.net, i think it's to do with oracle not ASP.net so you wouldn't need it in your page, I would stick with what you know and what works

Sorry for the confusion,

dd-mon-yy - is a date format picture in Oracle. I am not sure about ASP.
