Hi, I have a macro that prompts the user to input the date they'd like to filter the data on.  The date they enter is placed in K3 on the worksheet.   All works well except the column is filtered on m/dd/yy.  I need dd/mm/yy.

Sub PAWPSCLOSEDU()
   Dim Date1 As Date
  Date1 = InputBox("Enter date for 'Closed since', eg 01/01/07", "Input Date")
   On Error GoTo 0
 If Date1 = #12:00:00 AM# Then
  MsgBox "No date entered"
  Exit Sub
 End If
 Range("k3").Value = Date1
 Range("k3").NumberFormat = "dd/mm/yy"
 
   Application.ScreenUpdating = False
      Range("k3").Select
     Selection.AutoFilter Field:=9, Criteria1:=">=" & Worksheets("Priority Action Work Plans").Range("k3").Value
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = Date1
    Range("A1").Select
    ActiveCell.Offset(4, 0).Select
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Many thanks for any ideas.

Try it like this. I added code to convert the date format from dd/mm/yy into mm/dd/yy. VBA uses the American style dates, which is why your original macro didn't work as intended.

Sub PAWPSCLOSEDU()
Dim Date1 As Date
Dim vDate As Variant
Dim sDate As String
sDate = InputBox("Enter date for 'Closed since', eg 01/01/07", "Input Date")
On Error GoTo 0
If sDate = "" Then
    MsgBox "No date entered"
    Exit Sub
End If

vDate = Split(sDate, "/")
If UBound(vDate) = 0 Then vDate = Split(sDate, "-")
Date1 = DateSerial(vDate(2), vDate(1), vDate(0))

Range("k3").Value = Date1
Range("k3").NumberFormat = "dd/mm/yy"

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Range("k3").Select
Selection.AutoFilter Field:=9, Criteria1:=">=" & Worksheets("Priority Action Work Plans").Range("k3").Value
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = Date1
Range("A1").Select
ActiveCell.Offset(4, 0).Select
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
