good day all..
While I am compiling a vb6 project, the error highlighted this:
format(date,"YYYYMM")

Can anyone help me? Thank u very much..

FORMAT is a function, so you have to set some variable equal to it. So, for example:

Dim myVar As String
myVar = Format(Date, "YYYYMM")

Should work fine. At least, it did when I ran it. Hope that helps.

Sorry the title is wrong, not "YYYY" but "YYYYMM" and i'm using Windows 7.. Thanx for your help..

you have to compile in this modality
format(now mm/yyyy)
or
label1 = format(now yyyy)
label2 = format(now mm)
label3 = label1 + label2
I that this could be the soluction
