I am relearning VBscript, for a specific job function, as I am most used to SQL and while I should know this I simply cannot figure out how to convert MM/DD/YY to a string: MMDDYY. I have attempted to use Cstr however I get a type mismatch.

Simply just trying to take a field (Denial Date) which is MM/DD/YY and convert it to DenailStr (MMDDYY)

Thank you in advance

TheDate is your date string:
Replace(TheDate,"/","")

if it is a date format,

dim newstr
newstr = month(mydate) & day(mydate) & (year(year) mod 100)

or

newstr = month(mydate) & day(mydate) & right(year(year),2)

or use this
dim newstr
dim mydate
mydate = now()

newstr = right("0"& month(mydate),2) & right("0" & day(mydate),2) & (year(mydate) mod 100)
WScript.Echo newstr
newstr = right("0"& month(mydate),2) & right("0" & day(mydate),2) & right(year(mydate),2)
WScript.Echo newstr
