How can i minus two Dates (LblExpirydate.Text - Label3.Text )

        LblExpirydate.Text = String.Format("{0:dd/MM/yyyy}", dataReader(0))
        Label3.Text = System.DateTime.Now.ToString(("dd/MM/yyyy"))


LblExpirydate.Text = 01/05/2013

Label3.Text = 01/04/2011

Start by treating them as dates, rather than converting them to strings:
Dim dt As DateTime = DirectCast(dataReader(0), DateTime)
Dim now As DateTime = DateTime.now
LblExpirydate.Text = String.Format("{0:dd/MM/yyyy}", dt)
Label3.Text = now.ToString("dd/MM/yyyy")
Dim diff As TimeSpan = dt - now
