Well since string can accept any characters except special ascii(0) who is end of string witch means after ascii(0) you wont be able to see any characters if you have some.

and if you write it these way it should work.

Dim d As Date
Dim a As String

    d = "1.1.2000"
    a = d

Have fun


Try This :

Dim a as string
a  = Format(dt1.value,"dd-mm-yyyy")
