Formatting Date Time

R. Ganesh Kumar IT asked:

Open original thread

I require datetime format as 'YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS' from sql server data table where I've stored date, time in separate columns.

I tried to convert in code behind

DateTime.ParseExact(ds.tables(0).rows(0).item(0).ToString & " " & ds.tables(0).rows(0).item(1), "YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS", CultureInfo.InvariantCulture)

Error: String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.

I also tried to convert and select in sql server query
select convert(datetime, DateColumnName + TimeColumnName, 120) as NewDatetime, from TableName

Error: Operand data type date is invalid for add operator.

But I get errors

Help me to resolve it.
