Padding a Date String

Some functions return dates in single units (1st May 1996 may be returned as 5-1-96). This makes formatting difficult where you have dates like 5-1-96 and 12-15-96 on the same column.

The function below returns a string preceded by "0" if the length of the string is less than two. If "5" is passed to the function, it returns a "05." Passing "15" to the function returns "15":

Function cto2d (u As String) As String

        If Len(u) < 2 Then
                cto2d = "0" & u
                cto2d = u
        End If

End Function
