[R] Date Format

Hi everybody,
I need your precious help for, I think, a simple request, but I do not manage to solve this.  

When I use a "table" function with dates in the rows, the rows are coerced to number after the table function.  

So I need to transform the row names into date format. But I do not manage.  

Therefore, for an example, I manage to write this :  

datetest<-"06/01/2001"
datetest<-as.Date(datetest,"%d/%m/%Y")
datetest<-as.numeric(datetest)
 

to get 11328.  

But I do not obtain the inverse tranformation :  

datetest<-as.Date(datetest,"%d/%m/%Y")  

How do we get this please ?  

Thanks a lot for your solution.
Pierre.
