In MS Access 2003, How can I limit in table structure the date/time field to just a Date with format of  MM/DDYYYY when I export the table as a Txt file?
It brings the time along and I do not want the time to be brought into the Txt file.

Thanks in advance for you assistance

make a query with all the fields except your date field, add a calculated field in your query ... and export the query instead of the tbale

this is the calculated field ... type this in the field name cell ... change DateField to the name of tthe field you only want the date of.

MyDate:Format([DateField],  "mm/dd/yyyy")
