Are you trying to display the value in a text box control or in a cell.?

Try this:

For cell :

  Activecell.value=Format(Date, "yyyy-mm-dd hh:MM:ss")

Note: you need to format the cell as per your requirement . By right clicking and select formt cells

For Control:
the control name will be unique for the whole work book

textbox270=Format(Date, "yyyy-mm-dd hh:MM:ss")

Hi kujumbio,

> For cell :
>  Activecell.value=Format(Date, "yyyy-mm-dd hh:MM:ss")
> Note: you need to format the cell as per your requirement . By right clicking and select formt cells

Is there any point in using the Format() function to format data in a cell which is already formatted appropriately?
Why don't we just format the cell (manually, as you suggested), then use a formula like this:
    Activecell.value=Date

Hi tel2

       If you use only date it will be based on the regional setting of the system . what i made is double check for the format.

I tried your code and Date only returns the day/month/year component and not the time.  You should use Now with parenthesis eg Now() as it is calling a function returning a value

Sheet18.textbox270.Value = "Current As Of:" & Format(Now(), "yyyy-mm-dd hh:MM:ss")

I've tested with an ActiveX textbox that it looks like you're using.
