How to parse a date in M/yyyy in C#

February 9, 2015

A little quick tip for parsing the DateFormat of MM/yyyy is to use ParseExact method on “M/yyyy” written below

DateTime dt = new DateTime();             

dt = DateTime.ParseExact(Months[i-1], “M/yyyy”, System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture);

dt = dt.AddMonths(1);

Note that this allows you to make adding months easier when using the method .AddMonths(1) which is why I have used “M/yyyy”. I have noticed that “MM/yyyy” will throw an error if the data being parsed is “6/2015” for example.

Hope that helps!
