I have a table in my sql db that I keep a date in a field to read off of in many ASPX pages. I need to be able to change that date easily through a web interface. I have a textbox databound to it after setting up the sql adapter and all. When I load the page, I get a runtime error. I am assuming it has to do with me trying to retrieve the date and display it. how can I do this and eliminate the runtime error? Then, what's the easiest way to update the date to the current time/date?
