I can tell you how to solve this.
1. dont use a maskEdBox.
2. use format on onfocus
3. use selectcase or if then.. to allow nums/keys/whatever on keypress
Maskedboxes tend to be buggy.  By doing it my way..the extra code can
be put in a module and reused in all apps.
good luck

you can't change the alignement with a maskeditbox, it's always a left alignement.

- try to compile your program on winnt with you programmed it under win95/98 (or on win95/98 if you programmed it under winnt).
- check your mask

!! i think that the proble with windows 98 only
- send me information about the windows version you use,visual basic vesrion you use.
- simply if you want to set the allignment to the left
use these line

at design time set the maskedbox properties like
format dd/mm/yyyy
mask ##/##/#####

at code for example at new data entrey

maskedbox1.mask=" "
maskedbox1.text=" "
maskedbox1.mask="##/##/####"

set on gotfocus method of maskedbox

maskedbox.selstart=0
maskedbox.selslen=len(maskedbox1.text)

its will work fine
