Add a Date to a File Name.

ive got the following code that removes a password from an excel file.
but my filename is located in the variable User::ImportFileDir. so its basically the path then /adm.

because the file will be using the current date i want to add the date as follows. YYYMMDD.

so it will be ------Value) + "sdate" +".xls"). were sdate is a string with the date.

filename admYYYMMDD

i have the folowing code but it does not work.
---------------------------------------------------------------
        Dim sdate As Date
        sdate = Right("00" & Year(Now()), 2) & Right("0" & Month(Now()), 2) & Right("00" & Day(Now()), 2)

        MessageBox.Show("sdate")

-----------------------------------------------------------

        Dim objExcel As Object
        Dim objWorkbook As Object

        objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

        objExcel.Visible = False



        objWorkbook = objExcel.Workbooks.Open("\\" + Str(Dts.Variables("User::ImportFileDir").Value) + "\" + Str(Dts.Variables("User::ImportFileDir").Value) + ".xls", , , , "test")

        objExcel.DisplayAlerts = False

        objWorkbook.Password = ""
        objWorkbook.SaveAs("\\" + Str(Dts.Variables("User::ImportFileDir").Value) + "\" + Str(Dts.Variables("User::ImportFileDir").Value) + ".xls")

how about this:

Sub showdate()

Dim sdate As String
        sdate = Right("00" & Year(Now()), 4) & Right("0" & Month(Now()), 2) & Right("00" & Day(Now()), 2)
               
        MsgBox "date " & sdate
End Sub
