I have a macro setup that can easily do the following:

What is the format of "currentCellValue"? You grab the first four
characters in your example above? Your code is dependent on how it is
a string is stored to pasteValue which I then can manipulate how I want.
What I want to do is make it actually more like this:
This won't work, there are so many things wrong with this, I won't even
try to deal with what you did wrong. Instead, I will guess what you
meant to do.
I am guessing that you are using something like a four digit year, a two
digit month, and then a two digit day. Is this correct? If so, then you
can CDateFromIso(currentCellValue), and this will give you a date object
directly and do all the work for you. This is the easiest solution I think.
If you really want to do the hard work and rip values out, you probably
want to use
DateSerial(year, month, day)
In your case, it is probably:
Your strings will be automatically converted to numbers, so you don't
need to do it in your macro.
Disclaimer: This will return a number, which will not cause the cell to
be formatted as a date; you must set the formatting to be a date.
I want to do this because the pasteValue as it stands is a text field, I
need it converted to a date field. I can do this just fine by manaully
entering the above code into a cell directly (ie. not in a macro) but when
I enter it in the macro I get:
Sub-procedure or function procedure not defined.
I know I can work out a micky mouse way by adding another column and
referring to the previous pasted data and then doing a special paste of it,
but this seems unnecessary.
Thanks in advance.
