I have a field saved as

7/6/2006 9:00:00 AM

but when I dump the var I get

2006-07-06 09:00:00.0

I need the time as well! Very Critical!

Initial Query
         <cfquery datasource="#Request.App.DS#" name="GetEvent">
         SELECT EventID,
                EventTypeID,
                EventName,
                StartDateTime,
                EndDateTime,
                EventShortDesc,
                EventDescription,
                Location,
                EventURL,
                EventImage,
                ContactName,
                ContactPhone,
                ContactEmail,
                AllDayFlag
           FROM Event
          WHERE EventID = #URL.EventID#
         </cfquery>

I know you can do this via Oracle...I need it for access...
                TO_DATE(TO_CHAR(StartDateTime, 'MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI'), 'MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI') AS StartDateTime,
                TO_DATE(TO_CHAR(EndDateTime, 'MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI'), 'MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI') AS EndDateTime,

<CFOUTPUT>
StartDateTime:
#dateformat(GetEvent.StartDateTime,"MM/DD/YYYY")# #timeformat(GetEvent.StartDateTime,"HH:mm")#
<BR>

EndDateTime:
#dateformat(GetEvent.EndDateTime,"MM/DD/YYYY")# #timeformat(GetEvent.EndDateTime,"HH:mm")#
</CFOUTPUT>

You should be able to do either:

<cfquery datasource="#Request.App.DS#" name="GetEvent">
         SELECT EventID,
                EventTypeID,
                EventName,
                Format(StartDateTime,"mm/dd/yyyy hh:nn") AS StartDateTime,
                Format(EndDateTime,"mm/dd/yyyy hh:nn") AS EndDateTime,
                EventShortDesc,
                EventDescription,
                Location,
                EventURL,
                EventImage,
                ContactName,
                ContactPhone,
                ContactEmail,
                AllDayFlag
           FROM Event
          WHERE EventID = #URL.EventID#
         </cfquery>

And if that doesn't work, you can always do it when you return the values:
<cfoutput query="GetEvent">
   Start Date: #DateFormat(StartDateTime,"mm/dd/yyyy")# #TimeFormat(StartDateTime,"hh:mm")#
   End Date: #DateFormat(EndDateTime,"mm/dd/yyyy")# #TimeFormat(EndDateTime,"hh:mm")#
</cfoutput>

It seems as though both dan and myself offered solutions that would solve firstbankak's problem. Either a point split here (or points to dan if my sql solution wasn't clear enough, since he was faster on the draw) seems most appropriate.

Thanks,
