Situation 1
Cell is formatted “General” and the user enter a date using the method mmddyy. Macro that will change this to mm/dd/yy
<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com

ffice" /><o
> </o

Situation 2
Cell is formatted “General” and the user enter a date using the method mm/dd/yy. Desired result is obtained
<o
> </o
>
Situation 3
Cell is formatted Date and the user enter a date using the method mm/dd/yy
Desired result is obtained
<o
> </o
>
Situation 4 – This is the problem.
Cell is formatted Date and the user enter a date using the method mmddyy (Excel takes this as the number of days from 1/1/1900 not the desired result). The VBA. listed below, needs to be modified to handle this
Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Dim DateStr As String
On Error GoTo EndMacro
If Application.Intersect(Target, Range("A1:A10")) Is Nothing Then
Exit Sub
End If
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then
Exit Sub
End If
If Target.Value = "" Then
Target.NumberFormat = "General"
Exit Sub
End If
If VarType(Target) = vbDate Then
Exit Sub
End If
Application.EnableEvents = False
'The following logic was found on Chip Pearson's website
