have a macro that when it was recorded it put the recorded date in column P (Today). I need to modify the macro so that to puts the run date (today's date) every time it's runs?

    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Today"
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "11/6/2012"

so currently Today date shows 11/6/2012 I need it to be today's date if I run it today.

No need for the Selects.

Range("p1") = "Today"
With Range("p2")
    .Value = Date
    .NumberFormat = "mm/dd/yyyy"
End With
