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
