[dba-VB] VB.Net Date/time in specific format

Hi John,

I have an app that does something similar with wav files.  What I use to
time stamp the files is to use the time as the file name as follows.

sFileName = sFolder & CStr(DatePart("h", Now)) & "_" & CStr(DatePart("n",
Now)) & "_" & CStr(DatePart("s", Now)) & ".wav"

May not be elegant but it works.

I need to get the current date / time in a format that does not include
: or /, IOW "20030123-082347".  I need it in this format for appending to a
file name so that the name is unique and sorts in the directory.

Has anyone already done this, or know how it is done?  I can get the year
part etc., but I am not finding hour, minute or second, and I am just
wondering if someone has code already built.
