Seperate time from dateTime column in microsoft access

Hi,
I am working on vb.net for windows form and ms access is as backend database.
I am query datatime field from access and show that on dataGrid on form, but I just want to show the time on datagrid and not the whole date and time. How can I make a query so that it retrieve only time part , and not the whole thing. I want to do that in query to access database so that i dont have to do anything on vb.net coding side.
How is it possible? please help.

to get the date component in a query use

   mydate: clng(datefield())  ' returns a long integer value
or
   mydate: format(clng(datefield()),"Short Date") ' returns text in short date format, or any other format you choose to use  


to get the time component in a query use

   mydate: datefield-clng(datefield())  ' returns a double value
or
   mydate: format(clng(datefield()),"HH:MM:SS") ' returns text in HH:MM:SS format, or any other format you choose to use

oops, let me try that again

to get the date component in a query use

   mydate: clng(datefield)  ' returns a long integer value
or
   mydate: format(clng(datefield),"Short Date") ' returns text in short date format, or any other format you choose to use  


to get the time component in a query use

   mydate: datefield-clng(datefield)  ' returns a double value
or
   mydate: format(datefield-clng(datefield),"HH:MM:SS") ' returns text in HH:MM:SS format, or any other format you choose to use  
 
 
change 'datefield' to the name of the field you are concerned about in the query.
