Default DateTime data type in ASP.NET

Hello,
I am having problem in running query for the following code:
I did the datetime conversion as suggested but yet it throws exception!
Please assist:

public void executePositiveListQuery_ANY(string selected_Date)
{
string sql;
if(selected_Date=="empty")
sql= "SELECT DISTINCT re_MLNO FROM ml_hiv_status WHERE (re_HIV1_Status=1 AND re_HIV2_Status=1)";
else
{
string selectedDate = (Convert.ToDateTime(selected_Date)).ToShortDateStr ing();
//DateTime DD= Convert.ToDateTime(selected_Date);
sql= "SELECT re_MLNO FROM ml_hiv_status WHERE ( re_SpecimenDate='" + selectedDate + "' AND re_HIV1_Status=1 AND re_HIV2_Status=1)";
resultsLabel.Text ="You Have selected"+ selectedDate;
}

try
{
OleDbConnection connection = new OleDbConnection(HIV.Database.DataConstants.CONNECT ION_STRING);
OleDbDataAdapter adapter = new OleDbDataAdapter();
OleDbCommand command = new OleDbCommand(sql, connection);

DataSet ds = new DataSet();
adapter.SelectCommand = command;

int count = adapter.Fill(ds);

if (count > 0 && count <= 200)
{
DataView view = ds.Tables[0].DefaultView;
//view.Sort=e.SortExpression;
resultsDatagrid.DataSource = view;
resultsDatagrid.DataBind();
resultsDatagrid.Visible = true;
resultsLabel.Text = count.ToString() + " results found.";
resultsLabel.Visible = true;
exportLinkbutton.Visible = true;
}
else if (count> 200)
{
DataView view = ds.Tables[0].DefaultView;
//view.Sort=e.SortExpression;
resultsDatagrid.DataSource = view;
resultsDatagrid.DataBind();
resultsDatagrid.Visible = false;
resultsLabel.Text = "More than 200 results found. Please Click the Export to Excel Link to Download the Results.";
resultsLabel.Visible = true;
exportLinkbutton.Visible = true;
}
else
{
resultsLabel.Text = "No results found.";
resultsLabel.Visible = true;
exportLinkbutton.Visible = false;
resultsDatagrid.Visible = false;
}
connection.Close();
}
catch(Exception ex)
{
message.InnerHtml = "SQL: " + sql + "<p></p>" + ex.ToString(); //Now it throws exception here!!
}

Try:

Code:
DateTime DD= (Convert.ToDateTime(selected_Date)).ToShortDateString();

Hello Lee and Imar,
Thanks for your suggestion, I did the datetime conversion as suggested but yet it throws exception! Any idea why that might be?

Actually My database in in MS Access and I need to compare the date column (which is in Date format in the database) with the value of the Date textbox (which is a string). So maybe I need to convert the string to date format and then compare......should I convert to date format?

My date is stored in the database as dd-mmm-yy. For example it's stored as 31-Aug-09.

Thanks in advance.

It would help if you posted *what* exception you're getting...
