Date Formatting (No Time)

Jan 27, 2011 at 3:30 AM

I want a date without a time, just like you can manually format a cell in Excell.

I have read the FAQ about styles.

If I pass in a DateTime value, I always get a date and time in the completed spread sheet.

If I put it into a string in the format I want, it still adds the 12:00:00 AM time element.

Here are two of the various combinations that I have tried:

DateTime mydate = (DateTime)datagridview[col, row].Value;
worksheet.Cells[row + 2, col + 1].Style.Numberformat.Format = "mm/dd/yy";
worksheet.Cells[row + 2, col + 1].Value = mydate;


string mydate = string.Format("{0:MM/dd/yy}"), datagridview[col, row].value);
worksheet.Cells[row + 2, col + 1].Value = mydate;





If my DateTime value is 1/26/2011 2:31:25 PM and I test my string and it is "1/26/11" I still get 1/26/2011 12:00:00 AM in the cell.  If I use the DateTime method, I get the same thing that was in the source grid.

I would appreciate any ideas.
