 public void databind2()
    {
        SqlCommand Comm1 = new SqlCommand("select FORMAT(deadlineDate,'dd-MM-yyyy') from FormDetails where FormId=" + FormIDs.Client_BulkPostCard + " and Edition_Id='" + Session["Edition_ID"].ToString() + "'", con);
        con.Open();
        SqlDataReader dr = Comm1.ExecuteReader();
        if (dr.Read())
        {
            Label1.Text = dr[0].ToString();          
        }

        DateTime dt1 = DateTime.Parse(Label1.Text);
        DateTime dt2 = DateTime.Parse(DateTime.Now.ToString());

        int days = (dt1 - dt2).Days;

        if (days > 0)
        {
            lblNoOfDays.Text = days + " DAYS LEFT";
        }
        else
        {
            lblNoOfDays.Text = "DEADLINE PASSED";
        }
        con.Close();
    }

The dt1 date is coming from database in the format as dd-mm-yyyy(31-12-17) but the current date which is stored in dt2 is coming from system as dd-mmm-yyyy(01-nov-17)
so it showing error . Please help me solving this issue using Asp.Net
