    First of all, you should only have to pass the year in quesiton into the function, not a specific date. If you only have a date, pass Year(TheDate) into this:

    Function bIsLeapYear(TheYear As Integer) As Boolean
    bIsLeapYear = (DateSerial(TheYear, 2, 29) <> _
    DateSerial(TheYear, 3, 1))
    End Function
