Date Format

This is very strange

When I use NewDate = CDate(CDbl(ItemDateCreated1) + CDbl(ItemDateCreated2) / 2)

Where both dates are 2019 I get 2079

If I use NewDate = CDate((ItemDateCreated1+ ItemDateCreated2) * 0.5)  I get correct result. Both dates are formatted correctly

I want to use double because it allows me to split seconds
