Interesting situation here
My VbScript is pulling these two columns (I eliminated others for this demo)  and placing them in a text file.

 the date in the CSV says 06/20/2011 yet its pulled to the text file as 6/20/2011..  
I need the proper MM/DD/YYYY to be transferred to the text file

Thanks in advance
Code Attached

can be execute by command

cscript Script.vbs sample.csv 1.txt




sample.csv
Script.vbs
1.txt

on line 34 of Script.vbs, try:
objRecordset.Open " SELECT ACT_ID, FORMAT([INTRO_CID_ISSUE_DATE],'mm/dd/yyyy') as [INTRO_CID_ISSUE_DATE] FROM " & objFile.Name, objConnection
