The process for converting a string to a datetime value that includes milliseconds in C# involves using the DateTime.ParseExact method with a format string that includes the "fff" format specifier to represent milliseconds.

Here's an example code snippet:

string dateString = "2021-09-01 12:34:56.789";
DateTime dateTime = DateTime.ParseExact(dateString, "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.fff", null);

In this example, the dateString variable contains the string representation of the datetime value we want to convert, which includes milliseconds. The ParseExact method is then used to attempt to parse this string into a DateTime value, using the format string "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.fff". This format string includes the "fff" specifier to indicate that the string contains a three-digit millisecond value.

If the parse operation is successful, the resulting DateTime value will contain the exact date and time specified in the original string, including the milliseconds. If the parse operation fails for some reason (e.g. the string is not formatted correctly), a FormatException will be thrown.
