In this article I will explain with an example, how to insert Date in dd/MM/yyyy format in SQL Server Database Table using ASP.Net with C# and VB.Net.
This article will illustrate how to insert Date in dd/MM/yyyy format in Database Table using Stored Procedures and the SQL Server DATEFORMAT command in ASP.Net.
 
 
Database
I have made use of the following table Medicines with the schema as follows.

Stored Procedure for inserting Date in dd/MM/yyyy format
Inside the Insert_Medicine Stored Procedure, the Date parameters are of VARCHAR data type so that the Date values can be passed in dd/MM/yyyy format.
Before the INSERT statement, the DATEFORMAT command is executed with DMY option which notifies SQL Server that the values of Dates will be in dd/MM/yyyy format.
Note: For more details about the DATEFORMAT command, please refer DATEFORMAT command, uses and example in SQL Server.
 
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
GO
CREATE PROCEDURE Insert_Medicine
      @Name VARCHAR(50),
      @ManufacturingDate VARCHAR(10),
      @ExpiryDate VARCHAR(10)
AS
BEGIN
      SET NOCOUNT ON;
     
      SET DATEFORMAT DMY
     
      INSERT INTO Medicines
      VALUES(@Name, @ManufacturingDate, @ExpiryDate)
END
GO
 
 
HTML Markup
The following HTML Markup consists of three TextBoxes i.e. Name, Manufacturing Date and Expiry Date.
The Manufacturing Date and Expiry Date TextBoxes are associated with RegularExpressionValidators for validating the dd/MM/yyyy Date format.
Note: For more details about dd/MM/yyyy Date format validations using RegularExpressionValidators, please refer Validate date string in dd/MM/yyyy format in ASP.Net.
 
<table border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0" border = "0">
    <tr>
        <td>Medicine Name:</td>
        <td><asp:TextBox ID = "txtName" runat="server" /></td>
        <td>
            <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ErrorMessage="Required" ForeColor = "Red" ControlToValidate="txtName"

Inserting Date in dd/MM/yyyy format in ASP.Net
Inside the Insert Button click event handler, the values of the three TextBoxes are passed to the Insert_Medicine Stored Procedure and it is executed.
C#
protected void Insert(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    string constr = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["constr"].ConnectionString;
    using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(constr))
    {
        using (SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("Insert_Medicine"))
        {
            cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Name", txtName.Text.Trim());
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@ManufacturingDate", txtMfgDate.Text.Trim());
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@ExpiryDate", txtExpDate.Text.Trim());
            cmd.Connection = con;
            con.Open();
            cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
            con.Close();
        }
    }
 
    txtName.Text = string.Empty;
    txtMfgDate.Text = string.Empty;
    txtExpDate.Text = string.Empty;
}
 
VB.Net
Protected Sub Insert(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    Dim constr As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("constr").ConnectionString
    Using con As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection(constr)
        Using cmd As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand("Insert_Medicine")
            cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Name", txtName.Text.Trim())
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@ManufacturingDate", txtMfgDate.Text.Trim())
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@ExpiryDate", txtExpDate.Text.Trim())
            cmd.Connection = con
            con.Open()
            cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
            con.Close()
        End Using
    End Using
 
    txtName.Text = String.Empty
    txtMfgDate.Text = String.Empty
    txtExpDate.Text = String.Empty
End Sub
