Good Morning,
We have an Access (2002) report that contains the =Date()

(Toolbar | Insert | Date and Time| format of 3/22/2011)

This date is actually a part of a Purchase Order number- for example- PO: 55K-3/22/2011

Is it possible to show the date format without the 2011 in the end? To look like this- PO:55K-3/22

Thank you!

Yes.  Use the expression:

  =Format$(Date(),"mm/dd")
