String field convert to date

I have a string field, 12.30.14 that I need to format into a date field mm/dd/yy.
Using the formula below, it returns 3/30/12,

Can you identify what I am doing wrong?

if isnull({@Split Left Email Name}) then Date(0,0,0)


if ({@Split Left Email Name}='') THEN Date(0,0,0)


Date(ToNumber(LEFT({@Split Left Email Name}, 2)),
      ToNumber(Mid ({@Split Left Email Name}, 4, 1)),
     ToNumber(Mid ({@Split Left Email Name}, 4, 2)))

I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

I assume that date is supposed to be 30 Dec 2014

Try changing date statement to

Date(ToNumber(Right({@Split Left Email Name}, 2)),
       ToNumber(Left({@Split Left Email Name}, 2)),
      ToNumber(Mid ({@Split Left Email Name}, 4, 2)))

If that doesn't work what is the @split formula?
