Convert string to datetime in classic asp

I need to be able to convert a piece of text to a datetime format. The text currently looks like this:

01/20/2015 1200

That is the date and time using military time.  I need to convert it to datetime so that I can some sorting and conditional statements.

You want to use the FormatDateTime function:

newDate = FormatDateTime( "1/20/2015 1200", 0 )

The 2nd parameter is for the format. They include:

0 = vbGeneralDate - Default. Returns date: mm/dd/yy and time if specified: hh:mm:ss PM/AM.
1 = vbLongDate - Returns date: weekday, monthname, year
2 = vbShortDate - Returns date: mm/dd/yy
3 = vbLongTime - Returns time: hh:mm:ss PM/AM
4 = vbShortTime - Return time: hh:mm
