Why go through all the variable manipulation:

Public Shared Function getCurrentDateTimeString() As String ' Returns current date and time in this format: "yyyyMMddHHmmssff"
    return DateTime.Now.ToString("yyyyMMddHHmmssff"
End Function

I like to do things the long way for beginners, the code is simple but there is more of it, just feel you'll learn more about the language, syntax etc from 6 lines of code rather than 3, personal preference i guess :)

Any one here can help me with a programming assignment....... C, C++ or Java language, anyone, WE can negotiate a price.

This is the wrong forum for C / C++ / Java my friend, a post in the appropriate forum would be better for you

Hi,

I need a code to show only the previous month date i.e. the program executes this month but must show last months date or just a month. So there's a message that says "attached is the monthly report", instead of saying 'monthly' report, it must print the last month's name 'month' e.g. 'Feb', 'Mar' etc ...

Thnx
W.
