error in string.

If I put 200401

it gives me 20042





Public Function IncrementDate(ByVal DtPeriod As String, ByVal IncrementAmount As Integer) As String

Dim strResults As String

Dim intYear As Integer

Dim intMonth As Integer

intYear = Int32.Parse(DtPeriod.Substring(0, 4))

intMonth = Int32.Parse(DtPeriod.Substring(4, 2))

intMonth += IncrementAmount

If intMonth > 12 Then

intYear += 1

intMonth -= 12

End If

strResults = intYear.ToString & intMonth.ToString

Return strResults

End Function

that is because int.Tostring does not keep leading 0

strResults = intYear.ToString & intMonth.ToString().PadLeft(2, "0")
