I created a windows form application that will insert data into a SQL Server 2005 database.  When I do this, I get the following error.

Conversion failed when converting datetime from character string.

Here's my VB.Code:

Dim strDate as STring = Format(Cdate(DateTime.Now), "yyyy-MM-dd").ToString

The date in the database should look like the following:  2010-08-18 00:00:00.000

Trying to get it to same format for the insert.  Any ideas?

According to your error, you are trying to insert string into datetime field in the database

try replacing

Dim strDate as STring = Format(Cdate(DateTime.Now), "yyyy-MM-dd").ToString

with

Dim strDate as STring = DateTime.Now.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd")

Thanks.  You are right, I was inserting it into the wrong field.  Too many of them so I got less fields in my insert then my values.
