Thank you for writing back.
If I understand correctly you are getting the date as a string from the database and you want to format it. This can be achieved by using the CellFormatting event and manually formatting the text of the cells:
sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e)
DateTime temp = DateTime.ParseExact(e.CellElement.Value.ToString(),
I hope this helps.
