Hi Delboy,
 One way to do J dates is with date format,
  Dim SDate as string
      SDate= format(sdate, "yyy")
  This will give you the Julian date with the year on the front of it.

Delboy,

This little function will give you the julian date, always with 5 digits, in the format YYDDD.

Function Julian(d As Date) As String
  Julian = Format(d,"YY") & Format(D-DateSerial(Year(d)-1,12,31),"000")
End Function
