I am new to and I am trying to use a datetime picker in my form.
While inserting date to the sql server in datetime column I am getting an error stating it cannot convert the string to date.

I understand the fact that I am trying to insert string into date column, hence please help me with the right code. Here is the code I am using.

Dim sqlCmdStr_Insrt As String = "INSERT INTO Project_details(project_Id,Project_name,Description," _
        & "Stdate,NdDate)Values('" & txtPro_id.Text & "','" & txtPro_Nm.Text & "','" & txtPro_Dsc.Text & "','" _
        & dateSt_Projct.Value.ToLongDateString & "','" & dateEnd_Project.Value.ToLongDateString & "')"

            'Executing the Sql Query to insert the data to the Project_details table
            DataStore.ExecuteNonQuery(sqlCmdStr_Insrt, sqlConnStr)
            Call btnReset_CrtPro_Click(sender, e)
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try

Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Public Class Form6
    Dim cmd As New SqlCommand
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            cmd.Connection = Class1.strcon
            cmd.CommandText = "insert into dt values('" & (TextBox1.Text) & "')"
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
    End Sub
    Private Sub Form6_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        TextBox1.Text = System.DateTime.Now.ToString((" yyyy-MM-dd"))
    End Sub
End Class

only save date in database
Your code totally sucks. If you're new to VB.NET, you should learn it,. THEN learn SQL. However, as I'm sure you're being paid for this mess and don't care about being a good programmer, we'll assume you won't do that, right ?

Your code is a disaster b.c you're string mashing SQL. Which means any user who wants to, can erase your database. Read up on SQL injection. If you fix your SQL injection issues by using parameterised queries, a side effect will be to solve your DateTime issue.
