Try this:

Dim Temp As String
Dim MyDate As Date
Dim CurDay() As String
Temp = "30JUL02"
MyDate = Left(Temp, 2) & "-" & Mid(Temp, 3, 3) & "-" & Right(Temp, 2)
Temp = FormatDateTime(MyDate, vbLongDate)
CurDay = Split(Temp, ",")
MsgBox CurDay(0)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
