Seperate date string variable into year month date format and send it database. while retrieving use covnert keyword and retrieve it in 103 format

You should use parameterized SQL so you don't have to worry about formatting:

private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
      const string connStr = "Data Source=apex2006sql;Initial Catalog=Leather;Integrated Security=True;";
      const string query = "Select * From Invoice Where (InHomeDate BETWEEN @Date1 and @Date2)";
      using (SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(connStr))
        using (SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(query, conn))
          cmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@Date1", SqlDbType.DateTime)).Value = DateTime.Today.AddDays(-180);
          cmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@Date2", SqlDbType.DateTime)).Value = DateTime.Today;
          using (SqlDataReader dr = cmd.ExecuteReader())
            DataTable dt = new DataTable();
            dataGridView1.DataSource = dt;
