Use ToShortDateString of the DateTime class. Here's an example

Dim SQLDateTime As Date
Dim OnlyDate As String

' Debug, get this value from SQL Server. Notice: This is my locale date format
SQLDateTime = CDate("15.5.2009 15:53:00")
OnlyDate = SQLDateTime.ToShortDateString

MessageBox.Show(OnlyDate, "Only Date", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Information)

Here's another way to do it

Dim SQLDateTime As Date
Dim OnlyDate As String
Dim TempPos As Integer

' Debug, get this value from SQL Server. Notice: This is my locale date format
SQLDateTime = CDate("21.5.2009 10:36:00")
' Locate the space character. That should be a separator between the date and the time parts
TempPos = SQLDateTime.ToString.IndexOf(" ")
If TempPos >= 0 Then
  OnlyDate = SQLDateTime.ToString.Substring(0, TempPos)
Else
  OnlyDate = "Invalid date"
End If

MessageBox.Show(OnlyDate, "Only Date", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Information)

If you still can't get the date part only, show the original datetime value read from DB.
