Formatting Date and Time Values

VBScript has a built in function that allows you to convert a general date (MM/DD/YY HH:MM:SS AM/PM) into numerous other formats. The other formats are long date, short date, long time, and short time. Use the following snippet of code in an ASP to see for yourself.

 
<html>
<body>
<%
Response.Write "<p>Now = " & Now
Response.Write "<p>vbGeneralDate = " & FormatDateTime(Now, 0)
Response.Write "<p>vbLongDate = " & FormatDateTime(Now, 1)
Response.Write "<p>vbShortDate = " & FormatDateTime(Now, 2)
Response.Write "<p>vbLongTime = " & FormatDateTime(Now, 3)
Response.Write "<p>vbShortTime = " & FormatDateTime(Now, 4)
%>
</body>
</html>
