    Date problem server-side

    I'm very (no, VERY) new to ASP.NET and I have a server-side app that was written for me by a contractor with whom I have no contact now.

    Thing is, this app worked perfectly on a Canadian based server but has now been switched to UK. Fooolishly, the Canadian server was pulled after I thought everything was working on the UK one, but I've discovered a date issue which I could attempt to solve,but since I'm really up against it time-wise, I thought I'd put it out here while i attempt to work it out myself.

    Client-side picks up a date. SQL table then has a list of entries with FROM and TO dates and the code retrieves relevant entry where Client-selected date falls between (or on) FROM and TO dates.The following code was working perfectly in Canada, but not so in UK, and this is what is happening: a selected date of 3rd December (3/12) is giving me the entry from 12th March (12/3) - get the picture? Also, since the DD and MM are being switched around, any selected date where day > 12 causes app to crash, since it's obviously looking for 13th month and above. Code is .........


    ' limdb select parameters
    cmdSelectLimdb.Parameters("@man_group").Value = strGroup
    cmdSelectLimdb.Parameters("@man_date").Value = selectedDate
    'cmdSelectLimdb.Parameters("@Check_date2").Value = CDate(txtDate)
    ' limdb select top
    currentRow = dsCurrentDataSet.Tables(0).Rows(0)
    ' Add limdb values
    cmdInsertChronForm.Parameters("@boss").Value = "MANAGER: " & currentRow.Item("man_name")


    I have added images of table layout and data (mocked up)

    Thanks in anticipation []

    I remember that we can give the format of the date in SQL Server. So change that to "dd/MM/yyyy" format or while sending the date from .net, convert that to "MM/dd/yyyy" and send. I guess i understood your question properly.
