Hi,

Well I never use Now because Now shows Date and Time. If I only want the date I use Date function. Now depending how your regional settings are set Date will give the current English date and Date$ will show the American date.

If its displaying 11/28/2008 then its showing the American date use the Date function.

I've never heard of MSScript where did you get it and what extra functions does it have?  Wink

Hi Keith,



Thaks but that still doesnt work. MSScript should come with VB it allows for your apps to run VBScript as a result the Date$ doesnt work and Date displays the date in mm/dd/yyyy format.



Thanks

With vbscript you and easily separate the date parts and then reassmeble the however you want.

Option Explicit

Dim strDay, strMonth, strYear, strOutput

strDay = Day(Date)
strMonth = Month(Date)
strYear = Year(Date)

strOutput = strday & "/" & strMonth & "/" & strYear

MsgBox strOutput

Well Lee in all the years I've used VB I've never noticed MSScript. Is this a Reference or an ocx?  Wink

I have it listed as Microsoft Script Control 1.0 under components. The path to the ocx on my machine is C:\WINDOWS\system32\msscript.ocx.

Thanks Mark but I don't have msscript.ocx in my system. I can't be a normal VB install else I would have it. Wink

Not that it really matters but this is what Microsoft says about the script control. "The Script control ships with Visual Basic 6.0; however, Visual Basic 6.0 setup does not install the Script Control for you." http://support.microsoft.com/kb/184739

Thaks but that still doesnt win. MSScript should proceed with VB it allows for your apps to run VBScript as a finish the Date$ doesnt make and Date displays the engagement in mm/dd/yyyy divide.
