Hi All,

I have the following code, works fine when the user adds a date but if they dont I get .....

String was not recognized as a valid DateTime

            If String.IsNullOrEmpty(FlxHeader(FlxHeader.SelectedIndex, 4).ToString) Then
                querypart = ""
                querypart = Format(Convert.ToDateTime(FlxHeader(FlxHeader.SelectedIndex, 4).Text), "yyyy-MM-dd").ToString
            End If

How can I get around this? The SQL server database is set to allow nulls.
