I have three field

Date                   Month               day            year
1-30-2008
12-11-2006
1-15-2007

my other fields have no records. Just the Date field has records. How would I divide the date so it updates the corresponding fields accordingly
something like this

Date                   Month               day            year
1-30-2008             1                     30            2008
12-11-2006          12                    11            2006
1-15-2007             1                     15            2007

Thanks

Select [Date], Month([Date]) as [Month], Day(]Date]) as [Day], Year([Date]) as [Year] from Table

You can add these as calculated fields in your table.

Sry was thinking SQL Server

Might still work if not use

DatePart

Usage: DatePart(interval, date)

Interval may be set to:
yyyy for year
q for quarter
m for month
y for day of year
d for day
w for weekday
ww for week
h for hour
n for minute
s for second

Returns: Interval part of date.

ONly got Access 2003.. not sure if later version support calculated fields

You could populate all your dates and then run the following query which will update the other columns

UPDATE Table1 SET Table1.[Day] = Day([Date]), Table1.[Month] = Month([Date]), Table1.[Year] = Year([Date]);

It doesn't matter about the order and the Table1 prefix is optional. You should alway use [ ] around column names that are the same as in-built Access functions.
