[thelist] Asp.net late binding date format

Hi All

I have a formatting issue that is driving me mad at the moment!

Some dates in the database are held in the format YYYY-MM-dd
And I want to display them all in dd/MM/YYYY.

In my page I have 

	Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "[OrderDate]",
"{0:dd/mm/YYYY}") %>'>

I have tried all sorts of combinations of formatting but I cannot get it
to display anything other than YYYY-MM-dd

Any help would be appreciated
