showing only date, not time, in Data Form Wizard field from access table

I've used the Data Form Wizard to display/enter dates the user has entered.  It's connected to an access table and it keeps displaying the time even though it's a Short Date in the access table.  I've seen other answers but they all have to do with SQL.  I have very limited experience in sql if it requires coding. Please help.

If you don't want to do it in sql use the onformat event of the databinding

something like this

   Private Sub DataForm1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim oBind As Binding = New Binding("Text", Me.yourdataset, "Table1.yourdate")
        AddHandler oBind.Format, AddressOf formatdate2
        Me.yourtextbox.DataBindings.Add(oBind)

    End Sub


    Private Sub formatdate2(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal cevent As ConvertEventArgs)
        cevent.Value = CType(cevent.Value, Date).ToString("d")
    End Sub
