  1. d -> Represents the day of the month as a number from 1 through 31.
  2. dd -> Represents the day of the month as a number from 01 through 31.
  3. ddd-> Represents the abbreviated name of the day (Mon, Tues, Wed, etc).
  4. dddd-> Represents the full name of the day (Monday, Tuesday, etc).
  5. h-> 12-hour clock hour (e.g. 4).
  6. hh-> 12-hour clock, with a leading 0 (e.g. 06)
  7. H-> 24-hour clock hour (e.g. 15)
  8. HH-> 24-hour clock hour, with a leading 0 (e.g. 22)
  9. m-> Minutes
  10. mm-> Minutes with a leading zero
  11. M-> Month number(eg.3)
  12. MM-> Month number with leading zero(eg.04)
  13. MMM-> Abbreviated Month Name (e.g. Dec)
  14. MMMM-> Full month name (e.g. December)
  15. s-> Seconds
  16. ss-> Seconds with leading zero
  17. t-> Abbreviated AM / PM (e.g. A or P)
  18. tt-> AM / PM (e.g. AM or PM
  19. y-> Year, no leading zero (e.g. 2015 would be 15)

    Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), measured in hours. (e.g. +6)
  25. zz-> As z, but with leading zero (e.g. +06)
  26. zzz-> With DateTime values represents the signed offset of the local operating system's time zone from UTC, measured in hours and minutes. (e.g. +06:00)

  29. fff-> Represents the three most significant digits of the seconds' fraction; that is, it represents the milliseconds in a date and time value.
  30. ffff-> Represents the four most significant digits of the seconds' fraction; that is, it represents the ten-thousandths of a second in a date and time value. While it is possible to display the ten-thousandths of a second component of a time value, that value may not be meaningful.
  31. fffff-> Represents the five most significant digits of the seconds' fraction; that is, it represents the hundred-thousandths of a second in a date and time value.
