I have a datetime type field defined in DB. I select data in a store procedure and bind the selection in a grid. I don't want the timestamp displaying. For "2011-05-19 14:11:16.000", I only want to display "2011-05-19" or "05/19/2011"  I tried Convert, substring, or define control width, none of them works. Please help.
The frid is defined as
<asp:GridView ID="kGridView" runat="server"
     AllowSorting="True" AutoGenerateColumns="false"            
                <asp:CommandField HeaderText="Read" ShowSelectButton="True" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="ID" HeaderText="ID #" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="Location" HeaderText="Location" />                
                ... ...
                <asp:BoundField DataField="DateOut" HeaderText="DateOut" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="DateIn" HeaderText="DateIn" />
            <PagerStyle HorizontalAlign="Center" />
            <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#F0F0F0" />
