I have a date, which is pulled from a database, that I need to convert to another form of that date. Example. Date1: 1/2/2001 Date2: 01/02/2001 What i am wanting to do is turn the current date format into two digit month/day with four digit year. Here is the problem. Upon converting the date, the return result is the format string?? What I have tried: String.Format String.FormatDateTime DateTime.TryPaseExact Anyone have any ideas?
