View Full Version : Solved: Getting a VBA-Created Date to Format Correctly

04-13-2005, 09:38 AM
I am using VBA to create a new sheet, then populate it with data. As an afterthought, I decided to add a revision date:

Range("A1") = Format(Date,"mmm d, yy")
Well, it writes the date, but the format is 13-Apr-05.
I know I can go into Excel and format it correctly, but why doesn't the VBA Format function do it for me?? :dunno

Well, you are just putting the value in the cell. Regardless of the format you enter it as, it will still be formatted based on the cell's specific formatting.

Range("A1") = Date
Range("A1").NumberFormat = "mmm d, yy"
