Yeah..I figured out this formula..

currentdate = Format(Now, "d") ' Getting Date.  It gives me what I am looking for.  
I am actually writting this date to a SQL table which when it writes it writes: Mar 22 2007.
So, this is more of a SQL date format...

Thanks anyway..I am sure your code works too.
