Default Date format help

Hi folks

I am trying this little piece of code with some problem: Active cell has a value e.g "16 Mar" and my objective is to convert the value to read as "2011-03-16"

Sub lc_date_format()
Dim a As String
Dim b As Date
b = ActiveCell
a = Format(b, "yyyy-mm-dd")
ActiveCell.Value = a
End Sub

Problem is that when the cell is replaced by variable a, the result is still shown as "16 Mar". Any clue?

Thanks for your help.

why does not work with an arraylist containing the months
possible this code snippet can get you started



Sub test()
Dim s As String
s = "21 Mar"
Dim l(12) As String
Dim d As Date
l(1) = "Jan"
l(2) = "Feb"
l(3) = "Mar"
Dim i As Integer
For i = 1 To 12
    If InStr(0, l(i), s) > 0 Then
    End If

End Sub
