This is what I have so far on this topic.

Dim TDDate = String 'Today's date
TDDate = Date 'get date and put into string

But the information comes formatted as 07/26/2007

How can I convert this in one step (or so ) into 07-26-2007


Thanks.

Return population for a City
If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.

Try:
Code:
Dim TDDate As String
TDDate = Day(Date) & "-" & Month(Date) & "-" & Year(Date)

Hello rmfrase,
1. Dim TDDate As String (not = String), and
2. TDDate = Format(Date, "mm-dd-yyyy")

Thank you both.

Oh, the
Dim TDDate As String (not = String) was just a typo as I was writing the initial post. (my bad...)
