date/time field splitting

Hello

I have created a outlook form to be used within a organisation and the form is sent to a database system.

I have a date/time field on my form.  When the user fills in the form only the date will appear.  Thats what i want.

Although when the e-mail is recieved by the database system, the date and time field is displayed.

My code is in VBScript
I have also looked in the all web sites, they have been no help

Thank you

When you assign the form field to the date variable before you send the mail, use the DateValue() function and it will only return the date portion.

For example...

Dim dteDate As Date
dteDate = DateValue(Now)

Ah, overlooked the database portion, what database are you using?

In VBScript you can use a function called Date().  The date function returnds the current date.

e.g.

Dim ThisDay

ThisDay = Date


In fact Dates are stored as numbers the integer part of the number is the date and the decimal part of the number is the time.

Therefore the following statements are true:

Date = Int(Now)

Now = Date + Time

(The Time functions returns the current time.)

Hope this helps.

In the Database system there is a problem they are not formating the dates correctly.

In Access they can set up a default format for this field, but they have not done this.

To correct the problem they can either create a format for this field or run a query like:

Update YourTable Set YourDate = Int(YourDate)
