How to pass in sql server's datetime default value which is 1/1/1900 from .NET code. It is possible to do System.Date.SqlTypes.SqlDateTime.DefaultValue?

I was able to do System.Date.SqlTypes.SqlDateTime.MinValue to get the minimum value.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the reply. If you pass in empty string for a DateTime column, sql server will insert 1/1/1900 as a default value. I want to pass in this default value from .NET. For a certain reason, I can't passing in empty string.

I only need this default value. Not the minimum date

You can still pass a dateime object that has this value


DateTime d = new DateTime(1900,1,1);
