date problem

I want to be able to type 110503 and have it show up as 
11/05/03 so I selected that date format.

Problem is when I type 110503 I get 7/19/06.  Is there 
any way to do this?

Excel counts the number of days from its base date - in your case I assume
that you are using the 1904 date system - and formats it to look like a
date.  Try entering today's date and then re-formatting it as General - you
should see 36756.  Excel therefore takes your entry of 110503 as day 110503
from the start date of 1/1/1904 which is 19 July 2206 in your selected
format it shows up as 1/19/06

The format of the cell (other than when set to Text) has no bearing on 
how the parser interprets your input.

For a way to accomplish your objective using an event macro, see

MFC CArchive problem
Hi all, I'm experiencing some problems with using the CArchive class. In a static library (LIB), I have declared and defined class A, and class B, which is derived from A. Both classes are declared serial and implement serialization in the usual way (zero-argument constructor & virtual serialize method). The problem arises in the following situation: an application (statically linking LIB) assumes a certain file contains serialized instances of class A, and deserializes them. It cannot however, deserialize serialized instances of class B. I have found the reason for this to be that ...

Mixed DLL Loading Problem.
