Hi Ian,

It appears to me that the two dates are in different formats:

	DOB = DD MM YYYY

	theDateNow = MM DD YY

If you computer's date format is set to DD MM YYYY (& the year of 
birth is within the range defined by the centuryCutoff),

	"put the short system date into theDateNow"

should do the job.
