    Have a look at the Format() method

    No, it doesn't. Date type data is not a String, it's a date and time represented as a double precision real number (float) basically identical internally to VB's Double type. There are no bits of text with punctuation.

    We'd have to see what you are doing with Date typed data. I'd guess something like relying on implicit coercion to convert it to String.

    Here's a slightly unexpected, Unwritten Rule about Dates:

    Dates have no format.

    (None any that you or I need to worry about, anyway).

    If you think they do, then you're almost always working with a String, not a Date.

    With the Format$() function.

    Code:
    Dim dtNow as Date 
    Dim sNow as String 
    
    dtNow = Date() 
    sNow = Format$( dtNow, "dd-mm-yyyy" )
    Code:
    Debug.Print sNow
    03-03-2021
    
    Debug.Print dtNow
    2021.03.02          <-- your machine's local date format (locale).
