I am emailing some cells using this method:
Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

Now then the cell is formatted to give a date like so:
01/17

But in the formula bar it reads 117 and this is how it is being emailed.

I need it to be maile as 01/17

Please advise.

Thanks

What is the shortcut key for Format Selection?
Ctrl+1 (the number one) will open the Format dialog for whatever is selected.

You could use the Format() function to format the date however you wish:
Code:
myDate = Format(Date, "mm/dd")
Hope that helps!
