Hi
I have two fields in a SQL database that are of types: time(7) and date.
I am reading data out of Excel that needs to be converted to these formats.
What VB.net code would I use?
All I can find so far is a conversion to date and time  together
eg Dim oStartTime As String = Convert.ToDateTime(reader("Start time"))

Hi,

The vb.net datatype equivalent for  Time datatype of sql Server  is TimeSpan ( http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc716729.aspx )

you can conver it like this, but you have to use the field INDEX instead of the field name

Dim tsStartTime As TimeSpan = CType(reader(indexofstarttimefield), TimeSpan)

Hi,

Try this way

select convert(varchar(10),date1,101) as date1 from tb1 where convert(varchar(10),date1,101) = '08/24/1994'

Sorry I forgot the GetTimeSpan, here it is again

Dim tsStartTime As TimeSpan = CType(reader.GetTimeSpan(indexofstarttimefield), TimeSpan)

You could just convert the variable to a date string in the way you need it.

varToConvert

cdate(varToConvert).ToString("yyyy-MM-dd") -> Date is 2011-03-18

cdate(varToConvert).ToString("HH:mm") -> Time is military time
