Date/time in a field is not of a specific format.
But you can choose to have it displayed in a specific format.
The format string you request is:

hh:nn:ss

Can be inserted in the format property of a field or used with the function Format:

strTime = Format([YourDateTimeField], "hh:nn:ss")

if your app is international or maybe you use different delimiters for time, you can use "short time" as the 2nd argument in the format command. THis takes the international settings as defined in control panel.
