Is there a way to get the date in the following format? YYYYMMDD The best I can get is with the windows date YYYY MM DD, but I need to get rid of the spaces. I am trying to set a label caption to the system date like this: label1.caption=Date and need it in the first format. Thanks!

WELCOME TO THE BOARD!

This should work:

Label1.Caption = format(Date,"YYYYMMDD")
