DateTime With C# and MS SQL

Hello,

I seem to be missing something from this code, it always generates an incorrect syntax error.. how do I cast a C# DateTime to a MSSQL DateTime?

Thanks for you time
DateTime dateTime = new DateTime(2006, 09, 07, 22, 21, 44);
SqlCommand myCommand = new SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM Mytable1 WHERE MyDateAndTime = " + dateTime, myConnection);

 mySqlDataReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader();

Open in new window

Best practice:   Like this...
DateTime dateTime = new DateTime(2006, 09, 07, 22, 21, 44);

SqlCommand myCommand = new SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM Mytable1 WHERE MyDateAndTime = @myDate", myConnection);

myCommand.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@myDate", dateTime));

mySqlDataReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader();

Open in new window
