I'm trying to parse a string of a specific format to a DateTime object, like this:

String pattern = "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.ffffff";
DateTime SCHEDULED_START_date;
try {
   SCHEDULED_START_date = DateTime.ParseExact((String)queryResultTable["SCHEDULED_START"], pattern, CultureInfo.InvariantCulture);
} catch(Exception e) {
   throw new Exception("Could not parse datetime from TSM to DateTime object: " + e.ToString());
}

The string looks for instance like this:
2013-05-20 11:00:00.000000

I am not getting this done successfully.

String pattern = "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.ffffff";

            try
            {
                SCHEDULED_START_date = DateTime.ParseExact("2013-05-20 11:00:00.000000", pattern, CultureInfo.CurrentCulture);
            }
            catch (Exception e)
            {
                throw new Exception("Could not parse datetime from TSM to DateTime object: " + e.ToString());
            }

this code works just fine, no exception is thrown.
make sure queryResultTable["SCHEDULED_START"] is not null or empty, and also u can use DateTime.TryParseExact() so no exception handling is needed.
