  • ..." + Convert.ToDateTime(_AllDate)  + "')" is the same as ..." + Convert.ToDateTime(_AllDate).ToString()  + "')". And the result Convert.ToDateTime(_AllDate).ToString() depend on the date and time formats setting on your computer, it may provide the wrong date string for MySQL query, so,please change from 



    Convert.ToDateTime(_AllDate).ToString("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss")

    You should not insert data handling in a User Interface, but in a data class or in a data layer.

    Be aware MySQL is not a product from Microsoft which has at least 2 freeware better solutions.

    Your question is 100% off topic, but there is simply no MySQL forum on MSDN search on Google for it or use a Microsoft product.
