I am not sure what aaaammgg is, but I will guess aaaa is the year with century and gg is the day

dim strNewValue
dim datDate

datDate = now()

strNewValue = year(datDate) & right("0" & month(datDate),2) & right("0" & day(datDate),2) & " " & right("0" & hour(datDate),2) & ":" & right("0" & minute(datDate),2) & ":" & right("0" & second(datDate),2)

response.write "New value to store = " & strNewValue

MyDate = Year(Now) & "/" & Month(Now) & "/" & Day(Now) & " " & Time

instead of now you can put your date..


or also you can use formatdatetime function

MyDate = FormatDateTime(Now,1)   .. test it from 0 to 4 i guess..

ugly, but it will work

dim strTemp, yourdate
strTemp = ""
yourdate = now()
strTemp = strTemp & year(yourdate)
if len(month(yourdate)) = 1 then
  strTemp = strTemp & "0" & month(yourdate)
else
  strTemp = strTemp & month(yourdate)
end if
if len(day(yourdate)) = 1 then
  strTemp = strTemp & "0" & day(yourdate)
else
  strTemp = strTemp & day(yourdate)
end if
if len(hour(yourdate)) = 1 then
  strTemp = strTemp & "  0" & hour(yourdate)
else
  strTemp = strTemp & "  " & hour(yourdate)
end if
if len(minute(yourdate)) = 1 then
  strTemp = strTemp & "0" & minute(yourdate)
else
  strTemp = strTemp & "  " & minute(yourdate)
end if
if len(second(yourdate)) = 1 then
  strTemp = strTemp & "0" & second(yourdate)
else
  strTemp = strTemp & second(yourdate)
end if


response.write strTemp

umm.. this may seem overly simplistic, but why not use the DateTimeFormat("string", vbLongDate)?

obosscher,
FYI, DateTimeFormat does not exist.  FormatDateTime does exist, but still does not return the requested date format.  FormatDateTime(Now(),vbLongDate) returns "Tuesday, April 02, 2002"
