I've got a file with Datestamp. I need to convert Date YYYYMMDD into MMDDYYYY. I know that I can use left() and  mid() Functions but I'm trying to find another way.

str = Format(strDate, "mmddyyyy")

Cdate converts String Dates to a Date datatype
To use CDate you first need something that looks like a date.


Dim DateIn as STRING
Dim DateOut as STRING

DateOut = format(cdate(format(DateIn, "0000\-00\-00")), "mmddyyyy")
