only with an opening <, sorry

As far as your insertion goes, make sure that the input mask of the database is set to the format you want (Short, Medium or long date),  otherwise when you insert a data it will also insert the time as you need to specify,

Are you using a combo drop down to insert dates or a calendar, or are you manually typing them in?

Show daata with this:

Function formatToUK(v)
     formatToUK= day(v) & "/" & month(v) & "/" & year(v)
End function


Put in DB with this:

Function formatToUS(v)
     formatToUS= month(v) & "/" & day(v) & "/" & year(v)
End function
