Had a date in a cell, stored it to clipboard to use as a sheet tab name.  How come I can do this manually, but not when it is run as a macro?  Please advise and thanks


    Selection.NumberFormat = "mm-dd-yy"
    NewSheetTabName = ActiveCell.Value
    Sheets("Historical_SelectionStocking_Ef").Name = NewSheetTabName
