    hi
    before I start coding I'd like to check if this method is the most
    convenient way. I want to grab my blog entries from Access database and
    output. There are two reasons I don't want to use simple controls in the
    ..aspx page; 1) I want to have as much code behind as possible (seperating UI
    & code) and 2) there is a date field in the entries I need to customize at
    code level (not in the SQL query)
    So I'd have an empty DataList control and in the codebehind I'd open the DB
    connection, populate (and manipulate the date format) an array and then
    databind that array to the control... right?
    Is it maybe possible to edit the date value directly in the DataReader
    object?


    thx
