I have a date: 11/04/2006 and I want it to be formatted to MMYY, so it would = 1106, is there a formatting function that will do this?

This is what I have in my code currently:


lexpire = Format(vexpire, "mmyy")   ' where vexpire = "10/31/2006"

lexpire gets set to 10/2/1902 , both vexpire and lexpire as Date field types

You must have lexpire defined as a date. Format is returning a variant (string). When you assign to the date variable it converts to a date based on what it has (1006). If you change lexpire to a string you will get the result you expect.

you mean lexpire has to be defined as a string, not a date..  That worked..  Thanks...
