VBA Syntax

ActiveCell.Offset(i, 5).Formula = ("=Text(" & ActiveCell.Offset(i, 0).Value & "," & ""mmddyy"" & ")")

I have the following line . I get an error highlighting mmddyy and it says "Expected )"

How can I correct this?

Try this

ActiveCell.Offset(i, 5).Formula = "=Text(" & _
                                  ActiveCell.Offset(i, 0).Value & _
                                  "," & _
                                  """" & _
                                  "mmddyy" & _
                                  """" & _
                                  ")"

You need to use double quotes for every quote mark that you actually want. So your line needs to be
ActiveCell.Offset(i, 5).Formula = "=Text(" & ActiveCell.Offset(i, 0).Value & ",""mmddyy"")"

byundtCommented:
ActiveCell.Offset(i, 5).Formula = "=Text(" & ActiveCell.Offset(i, 0).Value & "," & """mmddyy""" & ")"

You need to use three double quotes before and after mmddyy to get one double quote to appear in the actual formula

You can split them all apart separately as in Sid's solution, but this should not be needed.
By double quotes, I meant two double quotes (or double double quotes). Anyway = "AA""A" will translate to AA"A.

You are right Tommy. I deliberately split them so that OP can understand every part of it. :)
