Specifies the string to be converted to a value storing date. Str must consist of two or three numbers separated by the character defined by the DateSeparator property. The order for month, day, and year is determined by the ShortDateFormat property; possible combinations are: m/d/y, d/m/y, and y/m/d. If Str contains only two numbers, it is interpreted as a date (m/d or d/m) in the current year. If Str does not contain a valid date, StrToDate raises an exception.
