Assign today's date to a variable using VB Script

Experts,

I have a VB script that i am currently running to copy files from one folder to another. I would like to assign today's date to  variable tday.

I would then like to make a concatatenated variable of the date to be:

YYMMDD   thus today would be 140304

How would I do this in my script.

 I am having a problem just assigning today's date for some reason.  I am running in Windows 7.
