Hi,<BR><BR>I have a string : 4/4/96 4:30:00 PM<BR><BR>It's in a variable, lets call it string for the sake of simplicity. I want it to look like : 4/4/96<BR><BR>How do I do this? I know there's some way of chopping x number of characters from the right of a string but how do I do that?<BR><BR>Secondly, once I've got a nice organised date style as above, how would I sort a large list of said dates in order. I.e. Make sure that 5/4/01 comes before 4/4/01?<BR><BR>Anything would be appreciated.<BR><BR>~ Will.
