You should manipulate your string to a valid date format and then use a date conversion function.

Check cDate function here for further info:

Probably because a format like 0000:0:26 is not supported as a date string. This is why I tell you that you need to manipulate your string. You need to convert it to a valid date format before calling the date conversion function.

You can see a list of valid date string formats on the above link

Yep OK, I will probably just convert into a double or a decimal.

Thanks
