I am stuck in some date formating.

I am having some string which I have to convert into date object with format (yyyy-MM-dd), irrespective of my machine date culture(because I want to pass that date to some webservice which accept date only in(yyyy-MM-dd) format)

Thanks Dalek!
If you have a string, then you basically need to reformat that string to fit your required format. The DateTime object itself does not have a format associated with it. It's not internally stored as a string. Perhaps you mean that you have a DateTime object and you want to extract a specific string format from that. If so, that's possible. Just use an appropriate ToString overload.

Now you've get'em :)
Most software can output date time as the UTC format which is what you want. Ask the people providing you the date to format it correctly.
