You could probably try the FromOADate() function. The only thing was when I tried it with the value you supplied I was off by 74 days so I subtracted that. Not sure if it would be affected by leap years though.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2.         Dim myDate As DateTime
  4. myDate = DateTime.FromOADate(39336 - 74)
  6. Response.Write(myDate.ToString)
The 39336 would be replaced with a variable. Hope this helps.

I don't know then, I created a new website and tried that and it worked.

Forgive me for asking, but did you subtract the 74?

I have a need to convert simple dates (i.e. 02/14/2005) to a number, do some math, and convert back to a date. (in a simple query). The math involves adding or substracting days, and days of the week . I've used the weekday() function to convert dates to numberic days of the week (1-7) I've used cdbl (date) to convert a date to a serial number, but then I do math with the number and I can't seem to convert this back to a date.

Hi, I am reading some dates from an Excel worksheet in my VB.NET code and even though in Excel these dates appear in this format 3/18/04, it is read into my code as a number like this: 36903. I have been told this is a Julian date but the calculations I have found on the internet to handle the conversion gives me dates from 1938 - so either this isn't a Julian number or excel has it's own way of calculating it.
