    DTPicker

    I have moved this from another forum as no-one seems to respond to anything in it...

    I have a DTPicker in a userform. When the date is selected, even though it displays in the format ddMMMyy it copies to the document as dd/mm/yyyy.

    Why is that and can it be changed?

    Also, the date in the calender seems to default to the date it was inserted into the userform, is there any reason why it won't update to the current date when the userform is opened?



    Cheers,

    Mr.AndyE,

    DTP picker is an activex control. We cannot able to change its format but there is one thing add one text box in the userform and try below code in Userform initialize event.

    When you say:

    do you mean you have posted the same question in another forum? If so, you need to provide links to any and all other forums that you posted in, as per the Forum Rules.

    I didn't respond there as I don't use the DtPicker and wasn't aware of what might be possible with it.

    Thanks macropod

    @ AndyE

    Please make sure you're aware of the following:

    I'm afraid your post does not comply with Rule 8 of our Forum RULES. Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. You'll find people are disinclined to respond to cross-posts because they may be wasting their time solving a problem that has been solved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser)to the cross-post. Expect cross-posts without a link to be closed a message will be posted by the moderator explaining why. We are here to help so help us to help you!

    Read this to understand why we ask you to do this, and then please edit your first post to include links to any and all cross-posts in any other forums (not just this site).
