Hi there,

What is the correct formatting for this control source?

="Date: " & [Date] & " Time: " & [Time]

I want to add formatting so the date is dd/mm/yyyy & the time is hh:mm:ss

At the moment the current control source returns

Date: dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss & Time: dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm

Thanks

Chris

Are [Date] and [Time] two distinct fields of datatype Date/Time?

="Date: " & Format([Date], "dd/mm/yyyy") & " Time: " & Format([Time], "HH:Nn:SS")

Or is there a single filed and you just want to display it in the above format?

="Date: " & Format([DateValue], "dd/mm/yyyy") & " Time: " & Format([DateValue], "HH:Nn:SS")
