    convert string to date (2000)

    Is it possible to convert a string expression to a date expression.

    I capture a licensing date which the characters of the end date are sprinkled in with letters and numbers. This string is 35 characters long. I pick out each part of a date by using the Mid function. I build this string into a "date" format mm/dd/yyyy, but when I try to use this in a calculation...there is a mismatch.

    is there a way to convert this string into a date type expression?

    You can use the DateValue or CDate function.

    Dim strDate As String
    Dim dteDate As Date

    strDate = ... ' extract mm/dd/yyyy from long string
    dteDate = DateValue(strDate)
