my mistake, better use the following:
Dim cmd As New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand()
            cmd.Connection = cn
            cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text
            cmd.CommandText = "DELETE FROM BAL_SHEET WHERE DATE_VAL = @date_val"
            cmd.Parameters.Add("@date_val", SqlDbType.NVarChar)
            cmd.Parameters("@date_val").Value = Format(Me.DateTimePicker2.Text.ToString,"YYYY-MM-DD"))
            cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()

It is:

cmd.Parameters("@date_val").Value = Me.DateTimePicker2.Value.ToString("yyyy.MM.dd")
