hello,

I am having some real trouble with this one.  I have an aspx 3.5 page that submits a record to a backend sql server 2008 database.  When I test this page on my local testing server for asp with a real connection to the live database everything works.  But once i copy the file to the live website and try to insert the record from the live aspx file i get the following error:

  Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerServerErrorException: Conversion from string "14/09/2010" to type 'Date' is not valid

internet explorer debugger shows that the error is being thrown in the following code from the microsoft ajax on the line "finally {"

I have no idea what the above code is doing as I don't know java script and this is the last problem I have to fix before I can make the site live for my clients.

Any help at all is greatly appreciated
