how do i change the date format to d/mmm/yyyy
rather then d/mm/yyyy
Code:
Cells(x, "E").Value = Date & " "
Cells(x, "E").NumberFormat = "d/mmm/yyyy"

Excel Facts

Repeat Last Command
Pressing F4 adds dollar signs when editing a formula. When not editing, F4 repeats last command.

Hi remove the & " " from the first line. This is preventing excel from seeing it as a date.

Ok switch the lines so the formatting of the cell is done first before the date is added. Or you could just say:

Code:
Cells(x, "E").Value = Format(Date, "d/mmm/yyyy")
