    Why me? The devil is out to get me!

    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = InputBox("Inv date")

    Changed regional OS settings couple times, rebooted, formatted B72, checked date function in cmd,
    everything kosher. When entering directly into the cell date format comes up right, but not when using the above inputbox.

    Australia dd/mm/yy format is what I require but using input box like 5/2 (day/month/year) I get mm/dd/yy. If I type 12 feb comes up correct. What the ....?

    Has anyone else come across this problem before? My computer? Excel misfiring? OS crook?
