Date Function

Last modified: December 06, 2011

Applies to: Office 2013 | VBA

Returns a Variant (Date) containing the current system date.

Syntax

Date

Remarks

To set the system date, use the Date statement.

Date, and if the calendar is Gregorian, Date$ behavior is unchanged by the Calendar property setting. If the calendar is Hijri, Date$ returns a 10-character string of the form mm-dd-yyyy, where mm (01-12), dd (01-30) and yyyy (1400-1523) are the Hijri month, day and year. The equivalent Gregorian range is Jan 1, 1980 through Dec 31, 2099.

This example uses the Date function to return the current system date.

Dim MyDate
MyDate = Date    ' MyDate contains the current system date.
