how to format time from mysql to yyyy-mm-dd

I am pulling data out of mysql and inserting it into another table. The date for the lastsapactivity and applidate fields are formatting like 7/11/2009 12:00:00 am. in the db, it's formatted like 2009-07-11 and for some reason it's formatting outside of that. How do I fix it?
OdbcCommand cmd23 = new OdbcCommand("SELECT test.companycode,test.responsiblectr,test.ordernumber,test.ordertype,test.system,test.description,test.reimbursable,test.totalplan,test.totalactual,test.Classification,test.projectleader,test.shorttext,test.Lastdaysapactivity,test.applidate,test.IOPlanCIAC,test.IOPendingCIAC,test.longtxt,test.ActualPriorMonth,test.Statuspro from test LEFT JOIN projectmanager ON projectmanager.ordernumber = test.ordernumber WHERE projectmanager.ordernumber IS NULL", con22);
            OdbcDataAdapter da23 = new OdbcDataAdapter(cmd23);
            DataSet ds23 = new DataSet();
            da23.Fill(ds23, "test");
            int number;
            number = 0;
 
            foreach (DataRow myDataRow in ds23.Tables["test"].Rows)//test that if particular order  number does not exist 
            //insert that  
            {
                number = number + 1;
                string val1, val2, val3, val4, val5, val6, val7, val8, val9, val10, val11, val12, val13, val14, val15, val16, val17, val18, val19, val20;
 
                val1 = myDataRow["ordernumber"].ToString();

                val3 = myDataRow["responsiblectr"].ToString();

Any joy with something like:

val12 = ( (DateTime) myDataRow["Lastdaysapactivity"] ).ToString( "yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss t" );

see this code:
val12 = myDataRow["Lastdaysapactivity"].ToString();
string[] arrval12;
arrval12 = val12.Split('-');
val12 = arrval12[1].ToString() + "/" + arrval12[2].ToString() + "/" arrval12[0].ToString();
