Excel Macro calling VB code ActiveCell.Formula issue with date

I have a hotkey setup to call a Macro that is VB code.

I get the input box and after entering a date the cells update with #name value instead of doing the date calculation.

I've tried this:

    Dim agedate As String
    agedate = InputBox("enter age from date mm/dd/yyyy", "Data Entry")
    result = CDate(agedate)
    Dim adate As Date
    adate = DateValue(agedate)
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=DAYS360([@[Disch Date]]," & adate & ")"


And this:

    Dim AgeDate As Date
    AgeDate = InputBox("Enter date of ATB mm/dd/yyyy", "Data Entry")
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=DAYS360([@[Disch Date]],AgeDate)"


Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,
Torrey

Torrey,
Assuming that you are using m/d/yyyy short date format, you can use:
    Dim agedate As String
    agedate = InputBox("enter age from date mm/dd/yyyy", "Data Entry")
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=DAYS360([@[Disch Date]],""" & agedate & """)"
