Hi there,

I see you are using VBScript. See this page, esp. under the "international" section. It will walk you through exactly what you need to know:

http://www.codetoad.com/asp/format_date_time.asp

If you need help adapting this to your script, just let me know.

Happy Programming!

Assuming VB.Net, not VB Script, try the below code.

Also, when storing dates into a database, ALWAYS use dd-MMM-yyyy format. This avoids any future problems, and ensures the dates are stored correctly.

Wayne
    Dim datesel As Date
    datesel = Date.ParseExact(ListView2.SelectedItems.Item(0).SubItems(1).Text, _
                              "mm/dd/yyyy", My.Computer.Info.InstalledUICulture)
    Dim Sql = "select * from [Student_Outcomes] where [OutcomeDate]  = #" & _
              datesel.ToString("dd-MMM-yy") & "# And [StudentID] = " & TextBox7.Text

Yeah, sorry, it should be like this....
Private Sub ListView2_MouseClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles ListView2.MouseClick
        Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset
        Dim datesel As Date = Date.ParseExact(ListView2.SelectedItems.Item(0).SubItems(1).Text, _
                              "mm/dd/yyyy", My.Computer.Info.InstalledUICulture)
        Dim sql As String = "select * from [Student_Outcomes] where [OutcomeDate]  = #" & _
              datesel.ToString("dd-MMM-yy") & "# And [StudentID] = " & TextBox7.Text
        Debug.Print(sql)
        rs.Open(sql, cnn1, ADODB.CursorTypeEnum.adOpenDynamic, ADODB.LockTypeEnum.adLockReadOnly)
        studentnotes.Text = ""
        If Not (rs.EOF And rs.BOF) Then
            If Not IsDBNull(rs.Fields("OutcomeNotes").Value) Then
                studentnotes.Text = rs.Fields("OutcomeNotes").Value
            End If
        End If
        rs.Close()
    End Sub

ok i have used the code you gave me and for some reason it is changing the date all togeather to another date i have checked the database and where it is getting the data, the date it should be using is 19/06/2007 this is the date in the listview box where it is getting the data (see attached file first image) look at the list view 2nd from the top
the out put i am getting is select * from [Student_Outcomes] where [OutcomeDate]  = #06-01-2007# And [StudentID] = 54

06-01-2007 as the date

Bugger. It's not getting the month value (mm = minutes, MM = month). The date parsing should have looked like this....

    datesel = Date.ParseExact(ListView2.SelectedItems.Item(0).SubItems(1).Text, _
                              "MM/dd/yyyy", My.Computer.Info.InstalledUICulture)

Apologies.

Wayne

No, that would cause the same problem as before. You need to convert the US dates (MM/dd/yyyy) to 'proper' dates, which is what the code I suggested does.

But I just noticed something in your screenshot post. If your date is "19/06/2007", it's already in the correct format, so what's the problem?? The date returned is in a different format?? How do you load the dates into the listview? All you'd need to do is format them however you need them.
