From MSN:

When you return the numbers, do you still need them as an int?
You can use:
DateTime currentDT =;
int dtObject = currentDT.Year * (Math.Pow(10,4)) + currentDT.Month * (Math.Pow(10,2) + currentDT.Day

This should shift the numbers to YYYYMMDD format.

A much simpler method:

var myInt = int.Parse(myDateTimeVar.ToString("yyyyMMdd"));
