Hi Experts,

I have an Excel sheet in which dates are split out across 3 columns. For example, I have 01 in column A, "Sep" in column B and 2013 in column C.

I want to create a formatted date (dd/mm/yyyy) in column D. How do I do this in VBA (I can do it manually entering a formula) ?

Thanks
Toco

You can try this
Duncan
Sub test()
Sheets(1).Select
With ActiveSheet
.Range("D1").NumberFormat = "dd/mm/yyyy"
.Range("D1").Value = .Range("A1") &. Range("B1") & .Range("C1")
End With
End Sub

Open in new window

Many thanks. That works fine.

To answer the previous expert's question I used =DATEVALUE(1&"/"&MONTH(C2&1)&"/"&B2) as a formula within the sheet. No doubt this can be adapted to a VBA solution.
