Solution 1

see, below code
dim datevar = dbScalarvalue("select date from tbl where timstampcol=max(timestampcol)")
'dbScalarvalue function take query and give result from sql, database connection and all that will manage internally by function.
Happy Coding!

You can also convert date by query
sql="select *,Convert(char(10),date),103)As date from tabletemp"
this will give u date in 'dmy' format
