When i display list of records using datagrid my date is displayed as 0/28/2003 for all records i.e month is shown as zero. ITs sql 2000 . date in sql server is 11/28/2003 . Where as when i query the database by date from my aspx pages if i put select * from orders where date=0/28/2003 it doesnt return. i have to put date=11/28/2003. So this is only a display problem. Or maybe there are some date format settings to be done in config file ??? <BR><BR><BR>brij
