Date Not Recognized as date in Access

Hi, I have a date field that I believe to be properly fomatted as such.  However, my expressions and conditional statements are ignoring it as a date field.  This was confirmed when I went to add a sort feature to it and it tries to sort "with A on top" rather than by the normal date options when it recognizes it as a date.

Please let me know what I can check.  thanks so much.

Check the data type of the field. It is Text and should Date.
The format is only for display of the content.

Thanks.  Just figured this out.  What it was ....was a linked datasheet from sharepoint pulling in 5 similar lists.  on one of the lists, the date field was set as text.  When I fixed that and refreshed the linked list in access, it worked just fine.

thanks again.
