I need to update a field with the current Julian code on a daily basis.  The hurdle I have is how to find the Julian date code, based upon today's date.  I'd rather do it in a query, but can create a macro and do it in VB if needed.  Any suggestions?

Really simple, it's the VBA format function:

? Format$(Now(),"y")
