Yes, check documentation for the .ToString method of the DateTime object.

DateTime dt = DateTime.Now;
Response.Write(dt.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss"));

Dim dt As DateTime = DateTime.Now
Response.Write(dt.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss"))

Sorry...assumed ASP.Net.

Using VBScript with older ASP you would need to use the Year(), Day(), Month(), etc. functions to get the pieces of a Time variable.

Dim currentTime

currentTime = Now
Response.Write Year(currentTime) & "-" & Month(currenTime) & "-" & Day(currentTime) . . . etc.
