I am getting an error message saying that "Format Exception was unhandled".
I am trying to parse the string: 07/27/11 074854 using the following:
strdate = Date.Parse(Date_Time_Measured).ToString("yyyy MM dd HH:mm:ss")


How can I fix this? also I need to somewhat keep the DateTime parse the same because in newer files I parse out date time as 08/02/11 09:56:24
