I never use VB but I am looking at a DTS script that looks for the hour and day and second to have the leading 0.

so 9am on 1/1/2006 should be 0900 01012006

Here are the current functions:

the hh, mon, da and min needs to be updated.

mydate =now()

mydate = Now()
hh = LZ(Hour(Time))
Min = LZ(Minute(Time))
yy = Year(Date)
mon = LZ(Month(Date))
da = LZ(DatePart("d", Date))

Here's the function:
Function LZ(str)
  LZ = str
  If (str >= 0) And (str < 10) Then LZ = "0" & str
End Function
