Change the Format

ws.Cells(iRow, 1).Value =Format(Date,"mm/dd/yy")

Try

ws.Cells(iRow, 1).Value =Format(Date,"mm/dd/yy")
ws.Cells(iRow, 1).NumberFormat="mm/dd/yy")

Open in new window


Are the cells pre-formatted to "mm/dd/yyyy"

Maybe this?
ws.Cells(iRow, 1).NumberFormat = "m/d/yy"
ws.Cells(iRow, 1).Value = Format(Date, "m/d/yy")

Thank's again Neeraj the last suggestion that you have provided, works phenomenal. I have a pop up calendar function that when i click on cells it automatically pops up.

In order for that the pop up calendar to appear i would need to
1. Right click on the cell where i want the calendar to pop up.
2. On the number column of the box i need to click then on date.
3. Type of date 3/14/12

***Any way i can implement so that it can record this function on the macro.

You're question is not clear to me.
As you said, you already have a code to input a date through the calendar pop up in a cell and I assume that works for you. So do you want to apply the same number format to that date cell or what?

It would be helpful if you can upload a sample workbook so that it would be easy to visualize your requirement more clearly.

Having seen the mention of your calendar then the formatting should be done within the calendar form.

See my example workbook
