Hi Experts,
I have a date field in mm/dd/yyyy format in database.  In my aspx page I need to display in 24/MAY/2013 format.  So I am using DataFormatString="{0:dd/MMM/yyyy}".  But it displays 24/May/2013.  How can I display as 24/MAY/2013 or month changed to Uppercase?

Thank you very much for your help and time.

Try:

            DateTime d = new DateTime(2013, 5, 22);

            string ds = d.ToString("{dd/MMM/yyyy}").ToUpper();
            MessageBox.Show(ds);

Thank you anarki_jimbel,
I need it in a gridview.  Currently I am using DataFormatString="{0:dd/MMM/yyyy}", but the month is always in proper case.  I need month uppercase such as 23/MAY/2013.  Thank you again!

This one returns months as Jan, Feb etc.  I need JAN, FEB etc.  I found the solution already.  Here is what I am doing in DataBind and worked fine.  Thank you for you quick response and time.

string BirthDay = e.Row.Cells[0].Text;

e.Row.Cells[0].Text = BirthDay.Substring(0, 2) + "/" + StartDate.Substring(3, 3).ToUpper() + "/" + StartDate.Substring(7, 4);.
