The datetime field is 5/15/08

My expression I have tried:

format(Fields!CHECKDATE.Value, "mmddyy")
              RESULT:  001508

Seems to be dropping the MM (month) but everything else is correct.  Kinda strange.

Geesh, didn't know it was case sensitive.  So I was right other than that.  I appreciate your help.
