can you set a break point in the line
cmdCalendar.Parameters.Add(new MySqlParameter("EventDate", Calendar1.SelectedDate.ToString("yyyy/MM/dd")));
and tell us what value you get with "Calendar1.SelectedDate" ??
chrispatonAuthor Commented:
the value is {07/12/2009 00:00:00}
Elvio Lujan.Net Senior DeveloperCommented:
and why do you use the format "yyyy/MM/dd" intead "MM/dd/yyyy"???
