Is there a way to format the date parameter in Report Viewer so that it won't include the time?

I have a sales report that prompts for date. I want it to pull data based on user's specified date *only*. What happens is I get results of a specific date and time NOT all sales on one day.

I thought the solution would be to format the date parameter to MM/dd/yyyy
Is this possible? If so, please show me how.

Thanks

You can use this SQL to strip off the time portion
   CONVERT(varchar,CONVERT(varchar,myDate,103),103)

i.e. SELECT * FROM Sales
         WHERE CONVERT(varchar,CONVERT(varchar,SalesDate,103),103)
                  = CONVERT(varchar,CONVERT(varchar,@ParamDate,103),103)

This will only compare on the date, not the date and time
