Hi,

I have some VBA that allows me to edit data via a Userform, it then saves the changes to a range in a worksheet. The trouble is that when I save the changes to the date field it changes the date format from dd/mm/yyy to mm/dd/yyyy, e.g from 02/11/2020 to 11/02/2020. The Value that contains the Date is Emp2.

How do I fix this?

VBA Code:
Private Sub cmdEdit_Click()
'declare the variables
Dim findvalue As Range
Dim cNum As Integer
Dim DataSH As Worksheet
'error handling
On Error GoTo errHandler:
'hold in memory and stop screen flicker
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set DataSH = Sheet1
'check for values
If Emp1.Value = "" Or Emp2.Value = "" Then
MsgBox "There is not data to edit"
Exit Sub
End If
'clear the listbox
lstEmployee.RowSource = ""
'find the row to edit
Set findvalue = DataSH.Range("B:B"). _
Find(What:=Me.Emp1.Value, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlWhole)
'update the values
findvalue = Emp1.Value
findvalue.Offset(0, 1) = Emp2.Value
findvalue.Offset(0, 2) = Emp3.Value
findvalue.Offset(0, 3) = Emp4.Value
findvalue.Offset(0, 4) = Emp5.Value
findvalue.Offset(0, 5) = Emp6.Value
findvalue.Offset(0, 6) = Emp7.Value
findvalue.Offset(0, 7) = Emp8.Value
findvalue.Offset(0, 8) = Emp9.Value
findvalue.Offset(0, 9) = Emp10.Value
findvalue.Offset(0, 10) = Emp11.Value
'unprotect the worksheets for the advanced filter
'Unprotect_All
'filter the data
DataSH.Range("B8").CurrentRegion.AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterCopy, _
CriteriaRange:=Range("Data!$Q$8:$Q$9"), CopyToRange:=Range("Data!$S$8:$AC$8"), _
Unique:=False
'if no data exists then clear the rowsource
If DataSH.Range("S9").Value = "" Then
lstEmployee.RowSource = ""
Else
'add the filtered data to the rowsource
lstEmployee.RowSource = DataSH.Range("outdata").Address(external:=True)
End If
'return to sheet
Sheet2.Select
'Protect all sheets
'Protect_All
'error block
On Error GoTo 0
Exit Sub
errHandler:
'Protect all sheets
'Protect_All
'show error information in a messagebox
MsgBox "An Error has Occurred " & vbCrLf & _
"The error number is: " & Err.Number & vbCrLf & _
Err.Description & vbCrLf & "Please notify the administrator"
End Sub
 

Excel Facts

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

As VBA knows only the US date format, if your Windows Regional date setting is not the same format​
so just use the cell property FormulaLocal when allocating the local date …​
Another way is to convert the text as a date via the VBA function CDate …​

Thanks for the quick reply and I thought it might have something to do with regional settings, I'm in New Zealand so we don't use the US format.

Any idea how I fit that into my code?
