Returns a Variant (Date) containing the current system date.
To set the system date, use the Date statement.
Date, and if the calendar is Gregorian, Date$ behavior is unchanged by the Calendar property setting. If the calendar is Hijri, Date$ returns a 10-character string of the form mm-dd-yyyy, where mm (01–12), dd (01–30) and yyyy (1400–1523) are the Hijri month, day, and year. The equivalent Gregorian range is Jan 1, 1980, through Dec 31, 2099.
This example uses the Date function to return the current system date.
Dim MyDate MyDate = Date ' MyDate contains the current system date.
