You have to create a new DateTime object and pass it the year and month to the constructor

            Dim myDate As New DateTime(2008, 7, 31)

Sure :)
dim monthYearString = "0708"
dim dayString = "20"
Dim centuryString = "20"
Dim datetimeVar as DateTime = DateTime.Parse(centuryString & monthYearString.Substring(2, 2) & "/" & monthYearString.Substring(0, 2) & "/" & dayString)
