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.

 <%Response.Write "

Now = " & NowResponse.Write "

vbGeneralDate = " & FormatDateTime(Now, 0)Response.Write "

vbLongDate = " & FormatDateTime(Now, 1)Response.Write "

vbShortDate = " & FormatDateTime(Now, 2)Response.Write "

vbLongTime = " & FormatDateTime(Now, 3)Response.Write "

vbShortTime = " & FormatDateTime(Now, 4)%>
