I have a string value of "03/08/2012"

This needs to be converted to a Date Time format "yyyy-mm-dd"
Waht is the correct C# syntax?

This is what i have that throws an error.

 DateTime dteSplitDate =
                    DateTime.ParseExact(strSplitDate, "yyyyMMdd", System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture);

Thanks
