Changing Text to Data automatically

I have created a make table query , and within this query i have combined these three indivdidual fields cells days/month/years so that it is in one field cell.
The problem is this is in Text format and when run the make table query the date is still in text.
What i want to do is rather than having to manually change in the table design from text to date time format that i could do this automatically somehow via a macro or VB

Lets say your source table has 3 fields

Day  Month  Year

Your make table query should have a column like:

FullDate: =cdate(trim([Day]) & "/" & trim([Month]) & "/" & trim([Year]))

Which sould give the follwing result

Data: "01"  "11"   "2000"
Result: #01/11/2000#
