"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Using datepart you can do:

strYYMM = Right(DatePart("yyyy", Now), 2) & Right("0" & DatePart("m", Now), 2)

or use the build in Year() and Month() functions.

strYYMM = Right(Year(Now), 2) & Right("0" & Month(Now), 2)

Notice these return an integer, so for month we want to left pad with a "0" to make sure we always get two digits for months less than 10.
