Date Time Parsing

Centerprise uses .NET date formats to parse and format date strings.  You can read more about these formats here:


If you have an incorrect format, Centerprise will give you this error:

"Cannot convert <some datetime as text> to date using format <some custom format>."  If you see this error, it is a problem with the format provided.


Common Errors

  • Using 'm' for month.  The correct character is 'M'.  The lowercase is for minute.
  • Using 'h' to try and parse times that are in a 24 hour format.  Use 'H' for this purpose.
