Hi all,

I have recently noticed that when I run a query from a macro, like...:

Code:
Sub My_Q()
    With ActiveSheet.ListObjects.Add(SourceType:=0, Source:="ODBC;DRIVER=XXX Server;SERVER=XXX;", Destination:=Range("$A$1")).QueryTable
        .CommandText = ("SELECT Table.ID" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "FROM MyDB.dbo.Data Data")
        .RowNumbers = False
        .FillAdjacentFormulas = False
        .PreserveFormatting = True
        .RefreshOnFileOpen = False
        .BackgroundQuery = True
        .RefreshStyle = xlInsertDeleteCells
        .SavePassword = False
        .SaveData = True
        .AdjustColumnWidth = True
        .RefreshPeriod = 0
        .PreserveColumnInfo = True
        .ListObject.DisplayName = "Kwerenda_ListyPlac"
        .Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
    End With
End Sub

... I get cells wita a date value as numbers. When I use Microsoft Query directly, I get date values as dates. Why is that so? I would also like to gat gates from macro (and I know I can add this to the code - but what is the point in adding another text of code).

Cheers!
