sorry, i trashed your reply before i had chance to reply to it!

anyway, FormatDateTime i don't think is going to give you what you
want, so you're going to have to format the date yourself.  something

  strShortDate = WeekDayName(weekday(strFullDate), true) & " " & _
                 MonthName(month(strFullDate), true) & " " & _

should give you what you want, or something close to.
