Thank you for accepting the solution :)

The Date Format in .NET depends upon the CurrentCulture unless a different FormatProvider is specified in the method producing the string output of DateTime value.
In the following code the first two printed DateTime values are governed by the CurrentCulture whereas in the third the FormatProvider given as an argument to ToString method has overridden the CurrentCulture format.

DateTime today = DateTime.Now;
Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = 
Console.WriteLine (today);

Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = 
Console.WriteLine (today.ToString());

Console.WriteLine (today.ToString(System.Globalization.CultureInfo

//15-05-2012 15:56:38
//5/15/2012 3:56:38 PM
//15-05-2012 15:56:38

Please try to interpret the above info in the context of your code. I think it may be helpful.

Thank you, Sandeep :)
Solution no 1 is very good.

I think you can use SET DATEFORMAT[^] command to change date format for SQL Server.
