Hi
In my ASP.NET 2.0 Visual Basic Webstie I try to do

incident.ResolutionDate = tbComDate.Text

where

Public Property ResolutionDate() As DateTime
            Get
                Return _resolutionDate
            End Get
            Set(ByVal Value As DateTime)
                _resolutionDate = Value
            End Set
        End Property

tbComDate.Text is "10/22/2008"
Anyone know how to format is correctly as the date format should be day month year but I'm passing it in as month day year (ie 10/22/2008)

Thanks
AM

Try the Date.ParseExact method....

    incident.ResolutionDate = Date.ParseExact(tbComDate.Text, "mm/dd/yyyy", My.Computer.Info.InstalledUICulture)
