  1. Dear Vijayan,
    I am new to world. I am a AS/400 programmer. I have date field in CYYMMDD format in AS/400 database (ex: 1080305, being 03/05/2008 is the actual date). How do I display the date 1080305 in correct format 03/05/2008? Any help is highly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    Here is your answer.

    Option 1:

    Directly pull from the database and just bound it with the column.

    use AdventureWorks

    Select Convert(varchar,ModifiedDate,101) from Person.Contact.

    Option Two:

    In “Protected Sub GridView1_RowDataBound(”

    Bound it and use string property


    If you need a code for this please write.

    I will be writing later, I have to rush and talk to the client.
