Rowfilters not working with custom date format in VB.NET?

Sree1981 asked:

Open original thread
I have a select statement in VB.NET as
Dim SQLString As String = "select JobNo as [Job No],Format(Date,'dd-MM-yyyy') as Date,Aluminium as [Aluminium] from actualcost"

I have a filter to search for a [Job No] between two given dates as follows.Its not working because of the
Format(Date,'dd-MM-yyyy') as Date
in the select statement. Its working fine if I use only Date without any format.

I can not use only Date as I want to see date as 'dd-MM-yyyy' in the gridview.

What I have tried:

dv.RowFilter = String.Format("Convert([Job No],'System.String') Like '%{0}%' AND Date >= '{1:dd-MM-yyyy}' AND Date <= '{2:dd-MM-yyyy}'", TextBox1.Text, DateTimePicker1.Value, DateTimePicker2.Value)
