I reading in  DATEA ,FIELDA, FIELDB in a dataset.  Both FIELDA and FIELDB are text fields.
DATEA is a DATETIME Field.

If FIELDA is = "Y" and FIELDB is not populated I would like to move the DATEPART of DATEA to FIELDB.

How can I do this:  When I  just write the statement
FIELDB = datepart(DATEA)  I get 18884.  I  would like for this value to be able to formatted into a date in the text field FIELDB.

I would like to final result in FIELDB to be 8/15/2011.
