I have a DateTime Variable myDate in Visual Basic Project in Visual Studio 2010.
I need code that will remove (trim)  the last 6 characters of the text contained in this variable and store the remaining characters in a new DateTime variable myNewDate.
So if
myDate = “02/03/2011 22:44”
after triming
myNewDate = “02/03/2011”
That is basically I have removed the characters representing time from myDate.
Thank you for your help in anticipation
