    Formatting VB Script

    Hello programmer's. I have the following VB script in VS2005, ASP.NET that writes sql data to a text file. Can someone help me understanding whether I can format the paydate and checkamt fields? Please see the two sample format problems below. I need to reformat certain values. Do I do the formatting in the Dim section or in the if not – then section or in the streamwriter section? Thank you.
    Two Sample Format Problems:
    1. Using the below VB script in asp.net the “paydate” is outputting to the checkfile.txt as 1/1/2010. I need to format it so it outputs as 1/1/10.

    2. Using the below VB script in asp.net the “checkamt” is outputting to the checkfile.txt as 848.7000. I need to format it so it outputs as 848.70.

    flag As 
    Dim ds As New 
    Dim da As New 
    objComm = New SqlCommand("select * from tbl2txt", objConn)
    objComm.CommandTimeout = 500
     ''The flag is to let me know which authentication response to issue
    flag = False
    da.SelectCommand = objComm
    intFileNum = ds.Tables(0).Rows.Count
    If intFileNum > 0 Then 
    flag = True 
    'extract all fields out 1st, then format and write using the StreamWriter 
    Dim sw As New System.IO.StreamWriter("c:\CheckFile.txt")
    For Each dr As DataRow In ds.Tables(0).Rows
    Dim Strpaydate As String = String.Empty
    Dim Strcheckamt As String = String.Empty
    Dim Strname As String = String.Empty
    Dim Stradd1 As String = String.Empty
    Dim Stradd2 As String = String.Empty
    Dim Stradd3 As String = String.Empty
    Dim Stradd4 As String = String.Empty
    Dim Strpostcode As String = String.Empty
    Dim Strinvno As String = String.Empty
    Dim Strdocdate As String = String.Empty
    Dim Strinvoiceamt As String = String.Empty
    Dim Strvendor As String = String.Empty
    Dim Strcheckno As String = String.Empty
    Dim Strsname As String = String.Empty
    Dim StrGrp As String = String.Empty
    Dim StrGroupName As String = String.Empty
    'Make sure the value coming back from the DataBase is Not Null. If it has value then write it using the StreamWriter to the text file. WriteLine makes a new line for each entry 
     If Not IsDBNull(dr("paydate")) Then Strpaydate = (dr("paydate"))
    If Not IsDBNull(dr("checkamt")) Then Strcheckamt = Format(dr("checkamt"))
    If Not IsDBNull(dr("name")) Then Strname = (dr("name"))
    If Not IsDBNull(dr("add1")) Then Stradd1 = (dr("add1"))
    If Not IsDBNull(dr("add2")) Then Stradd2 = (dr("add2"))
    If Not IsDBNull(dr("add3")) Then Stradd3 = (dr("add3"))
    If Not IsDBNull(dr("add4")) Then Stradd4 = (dr("add4"))
    If Not IsDBNull(dr("postcode")) Then Strpostcode = (dr("postcode"))
    If Not IsDBNull(dr("invno")) Then Strinvno = (dr("invno"))
    If Not IsDBNull(dr("docdate")) Then Strinvno = (dr("docdate"))
    If Not IsDBNull(dr("invoiceamt")) Then Strinvoiceamt = (dr("invoiceamt"))
    If Not IsDBNull(dr("vendor")) Then Strvendor = (dr("vendor"))
    If Not IsDBNull(dr("checkno")) Then Strcheckno = (dr("checkno"))
    If Not IsDBNull(dr("sname")) Then Strsname = (dr("sname"))
    If Not IsDBNull(dr("Grp")) Then StrGrp = (dr("Grp"))
    If Not IsDBNull(dr("GroupName")) Then StrGroupName = (dr("GroupName"))
    'Now write to the streamwriter, adding a space between the values 
    sw.WriteLine(Strpaydate + " " + " " + Strcheckamt + " " + Strname + " " + Stradd1 + " " + Stradd2 _" " + Stradd3 + " " + Stradd4 + " " + Strpostcode + " " + Strdocdate + " " + Strinvoiceamt + " " + Strvendor _" " + Strinvno + " " + " " + Strcheckno + " " + Strsname + " " + StrGrp + " " + StrGroupName)
    'Clean Up 
    'Clean Up 
    End If
