Paste in CSV file


I have code which opens up a CSV file, copies it and pastes it into my Excel file. Within the CSV file there are dates in the format 01/06/2011 which dislays as Jun-11. However when i look at what has been pasted in it shows up as 11/01/2011. This is not correct. the code i have is as follows:-

Option Explicit

Dim filName As String

Sub Paste_In_Settlement_File()

ChDir "C:\Users\tlittle\Documents\Brent Settlement Analysis\May11 Front Month 2 Mins"

filName = Application.GetOpenFilename(FileFilter:="csv files,*.csv", Title:="Select Settlement File", _

Workbooks.OpenText Filename:=filName, DataType:=xlDelimited, comma:=True, Local:=True

'If Err.Number = 1004 Then
'MsgBox ("Please Choose Settlement File")
'Exit Sub
'End If

Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
Sheets("Atlas File").Select
ActiveSheet.PasteSpecial Format:="Unicode Text", Link:=False, _

End Sub

I have put i break in the code to see if it open and copies in the correct date format which is it does. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks
