Hi Serema,

I use the following method to get a date:

// if passing in a string from an edit box, ensure it is the editbox.string

// NOT the editbox.value which is passed!!!

public static DateTime ConvertToDateFromSAPString(string value)




SBObob Bob = (SBObob)BaseUI.oCompany.GetBusinessObject(BoObjectTypes.BoBridge);

Recordset RecSet = Bob.Format_StringToDate(value);

return Convert.ToDateTime(RecSet.Fields.Item(0).Value);




return DateTime.Today;
