How do I change the format of a query field?

Hi everyone,

I am creating a simple query that takes a list of clients with additional related information. Among the fields that I am adding into my query, one field contains dates that do not have a date format.

Their current format is YYYYMMDD but Access does not recognize it as a date.

How can I use the query so that my dates become actual dates in Access(so that I can compare these dates with the actual current date)?

Thank you!
