I'm pulling data from an Access DB, and one of the fields is date. Here's my query:

select TargetCompany, ID, NextActionDate, NextAction from tblMain

the date is comin up as general format including the 12:00:00AM even though I set the format of this field to ShortDate in Access. I tried using FORMAT(Date, 101) AS Date but it didn't seem to like it. How do I get the date to display without the 12:00:00AM??


TIA

are you displaying this in a gridview? if so, set DataFormatString="{0:d}" HTMLEncode="False" on the boundfield.
