I like Answers2000's answer better, since the proposed answer failed to work in Windows 95 -- although it worked on Windows NT.  Thanks,

Mark,

Thanks for accepting the answer, but I have used the above code in '95 without problems.  What behaviour did you experience?

Mark,

Very odd.  I should think it was some other code caused the exception, because I have used the above code in shipping products without any trouble.  I should also think that the COleDateTime probably calls down to the same code.

Regards,
