I have an access database that has a date field formated "mm/dd/yyy" but I'm going to be importing it into a field that is formatted "yyyy/mm/dd".

Will I need to do anything special on the import to ensure the data doesn't get messed up when I import it?

I think that the date format of the target will take care of the change of date format.

I go with  JAMcDo. The Date format doesn't affect the value of the date so I don't see any issue when you do the import/export.

Sincerely,
Ed
