Can somebody help me with fixing my date modified code in VBA?

I have added a date modified code that was recommended by someone else in a forum somewhere.  It works... however now the month (mm) is missing, and when i formulated the font size, it shows up at 409pts??  Does anyone have an idea of what I might be doing wrong?
Code is shown below.

Or... is there a better way to do this?  My customer wants the date the file was modified to show up on the top of the sheet, in the header.  And it should only show the date that it was modified, not the current date that you open the file.

Thanks,
Toni

Hello herkie94,

I think you left out a space.

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
    For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
       ws.PageSetup.RightHeader = "&""Arial,Italic""&7 " & Format(Now, "mm/dd/yyyy")
    Next
End Sub

Regards,

Patrick

Patrick,

Where do you see the extra space?  I made the adjustments similar to yours, but did not see an extra space.

Should I post the document?

Thanks,
Toni

Here it is.  It also won't let me get to the footer now... this is weird.

Another issue that came up after doing all of this... I can't access my header/footer anymore by going into a separate window.  Now Excel is showing it on the page rather than separately.  Is there something that I accidentally hit to make it do that? I want it to go back.

Patrick,

Were you able to take a look at the file I uploaded?

herkie94,

My apologies for the lack of response.

Look at these two lines...

From your code:
       ws.PageSetup.RightHeader = "&""Arial""&I&7" & Format(Now, "mm/dd/yy")

from mine:
       ws.PageSetup.RightHeader = "&""Arial,Italic""&7 " & Format(Now, "mm/dd/yyyy")

Note how mine has a space following the 7, and yours does not.  When I make that correction in the code, it runs
just fine, as I indicated previously.  I just tested this against your sample file.

The suggestion I offered previously (http:#a24127036) answers the question.

Cheers,
