I'm getting a mismatch error when executing following code in vb6 program.

    dim sEffDate as string
    sEffDate = HO.IPINCPMMDDYYYY
    ' value of sEffDate is now 08012007
    Dim dEffDate As Date
    dEffDate = CDate(sEffDate)

' gives error message "Type mismatch"

Can anyone help a vb6 novice?
