SQL 2008 date data type ODBC link to Access 2007 changes to text data type

I have a SQL 2008 table that has a date data type.  When connection to Access 2007 via ODBC connection, Access thinks the data type is text.  Is there a patch or fix for this problem?
Thanks for your help.

From what I have seen, Access 2007 doesn't recognize SQL 2008's DATE data type. One option that should work is to change your SQL column's data type to SMALLDATETIME, which Access 2007 should have no problem recognizing.

We do not want the "time" part of the SMALLDATETIME data field.  Do you know if there is a patch or hot fix for this problem?

Found a solution for this problem.  My ODBC connection was using SQL Server driver.  I deleted the ODBC Connection and setup a new connection using SQL Server Native Client 10.0.  Deleted the linked tables and re-linked.  Now the Access knows the new data type "DATE" is a date.  Thanks for your help.

This solution would be good if you don't mind adding the time to the date.  My solution worked best for what we needed.  Thanks for the help.
