I'm having users input dates through 3 drop-downs into string variables: SNTDay, SNTMonth & SNTYear - and there is a string variable that constructs the date thus: SNTDate = SNTDay & "/" & SNTMonth & "/" & SNTYear

However, when it puts the result into a sheet it is coming out as 08/03/2010 not 03/08/2010 - the formats have been set correctly in the sheet and my time zone is correct in control panel even when I output the SNTDate to a MsgBox it is correct but not when it goes into the sheet.

I'm stumped!

the Type of the variable should be Date (not string)
but iven if this cuase not problem - did you try with a date more than 12
it looks like you construct it correct once then vba ( or excel reoders it again)
