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

 I would strongly suggest you use an underscore rather than a hyphen in
your file name.  We've encountered various situations where the hyphen
is treated as an invalid character, particularly when transferring files

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

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.
