Have a look at this also:

For Date:      
        Dim Inputdate As DateTime = Convert.ToDateTime("6-5-2010")
        Dim FormattedDate As String = Inputdate.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy")

For Amount:
        Dim InputAmt As String = "$ 10000000000"
        Dim Amount As Double = Double.Parse(InputAmt.Replace("$ ", ""))
        Dim deciPart As String = String.Format("{0:#\.##}", Amount)
        Dim IntPart As Integer = String.Format("{0:#\.##}", Amount)
        Dim revenue As String = IntPart.ToString("###,##")
        revenue = "$" + revenue + "." + deciPart.Split(".")(1).ToString()
