Date Statement

This page is specific to the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) Language Reference for Office 2010.

Sets the current system date.

Syntax

Date = date

For systems running Microsoft Windows 95, the required date specification must be a date from January 1, 1980 through December 31, 2099. For systems running Microsoft Windows NT, date must be a date from January 1, 1980 through December 31, 2079. For the Macintosh, date must be a date from January 1, 1904 through February 5, 2040.

This example uses the Date statement to set the computer system date. In the development environment, the date literal is displayed in short date format using the locale settings of your code.

Dim MyDate 
MyDate = #February 12, 1985# ' Assign a date. 
Date = MyDate ' Change system date.
