    change of seperator when using SaveAs, instead of 07/08/13 it needs to be 07.08.13

    Good morning all,
    I have a small programme running which requires the form to be saved after completion. It needs to be saved just by date and time, so using the following code
    Code:
    Application.Dialogs(xlDialogSaveAs). Show Now()
    The only problem is that when the date and time are saved they have seperators which will not save ie. 07/08/13 09:01:30. I need to be able to change this to
    07.08.13 09.01.30. Could somebody please show me how to do this.

    Many thanks
    Robbosan

    This might work for you :

    Although it is not separated with dots, but I think you'll get the idea

    You may be able to use Replace() as well
    Code:
    Dim AlteredDate as String
    AlteredDate=Replace(Now(), "/", ".")
    Msgbox AlteredDate
    The same can work for any character it this case you would need to use it more than once
