Dim dtFirstOfMonth As Date = dtNow.AddDays(-dtNow.Day + 1)
        Dim dt As Date = Date.Parse(dtFirstOfMonth)
        dt = FormatDateTime(dt, DateFormat.ShortDate)
        dayofweeks = dt.DayOfWeek
        dateString = dt

        dateString = Trim(dateString)

dateString is a short date that has #1/1/2014#
when it is stored in access which the field is set to short date it appears as 1/1/2014
when I query I get message mismatch in query.
how do I trim off the # signs from dateString.
tried dateString = dateString.trim(#)  comes back as trim is not a method of date

query line reads:
Dim DaD2 As OleDbDataAdapter = New OleDbDataAdapter("Select * from EmployeeAccumInfo where WORKDATE =  '" & dateString & " '   ", Con)
WORKDATE in this case is would be 1/1/2014 and dateString is #1/1/2014#

thanks

Change following

dateString = dt

to

either

dateString = dt.ToString("dd/MM/yyyy")

or

dateString = dt.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy")

depending on the format you are using.
