is the field called d in fact a Date/Time field in the database (I assume here that you are using Access as the back-end database???)

You can use the format function.

rec2.open "select * from entry " & _
"where d between cDate(" & format(text2.text,"DD-MM-YYYY") & ") and cDate(" & format(text2.text,"DD-MM-YYYY") & ")"

For this you must create your on date with a two dimention array. The first dimention for the month and the second for the language.

dim strMonth(1 to 12, 1 to 3) as string
strMonth(1, 1) = "Januari"
strMonth(1, 2) = "Janvier"
strMonth(1, 3) = "January"
...

msgbox day(text2.text) & " " & strMonth(month(text2.text), language) & " " & year(text2.text)
