That gives me 2010-09-09 00:00:00.00
How do I show the milliseconds with 3 digits?

Please try this Convert.ToDateTime("9/9/2010 12:00:00 AM").ToString("yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss.fff")

On this page: http://www.geekzilla.co.uk/View00FF7904-B510-468C-A2C8-F859AA20581F.htm  is a listing of DateTime.ToString() formats.

DateTime.ToString ( 'u' ) is close but more detailed versions are listed.

Note that 9/9/2010 12:00:00 AM will become 2010-09-09 00:00:00.000 in 24-hour time.

See: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8kb3ddd4(VS.80).aspx

You should be able to use "fff" for the milliseconds so "HH:mm:ss.fff" for the time portion.
