This charmer was found in the codebase im working on now. I almost fell out of my chair when I first encountered it:
Public Function MyMonthName(ByVal m As Long, _
Optional ByVal appr As Boolean = False) As
Dim tmp As String
Select Case m
Case 1: tmp = "January"
Case 2: tmp = "February"
Case 3: tmp = "March"
Case 4: tmp = "April"
Case 5: tmp = "May"
Case 6: tmp = "June"
Case 7: tmp = "July"
Case 8: tmp = "August"
Case 9: tmp = "September"
Case 10: tmp = "October"
Case 11: tmp = "November"
Case 12: tmp = "December"
Case Else: tmp = Format(m, "0")
If appr Then
MyMonthName = Left(tmp, 3)
MyMonthName = tmp
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
