Mask edit won't work

I have a masked edit control connected to a VB data control (which addresses a date field in an Access database). No matter what I set the .format property to on the mask edit control, the date always appears as mm/dd/yy ( I want it to be mm/dd/yyyy.  Is this control buggy or am I doing something wrong?

On way to correctly displayy mm/dd/yyyy in a masked edit control is to use the "ddddd" (5 d's) as the format value.

Second, you have to change the computer's short date format to include the century:

goto your control panel and double click on Regional Settings, then select the Date Tab, finally in the middle section "Short Date" read "mm/dd/yyyy".

This will then display the entire year in your masked edit box.
