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?

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.
