I am getting the user input date using the user response function. That is not a problem. I am getting the format likt this.MM:dd:yy hh:mm:ss: bt i don't want hour,minute and seconds, I tried to use the to date function bt it throws the the error, and i tried format as well. that is also helpless. Can any one suggest how to display the date separately not include hh:mm; and ss.
