I need to query a table where I am looking at a time stamp. The time stamp that i will be looking for will be for the month of January 2013.
 
The dates in the time stamp will be formatted like this (Date/Time):

1/1/2013 2:00:00 PM
1/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
1/17/2013 8:00:00 PM

How do I query this field so that I only get the month of January and the year of 2013.

Thanks.

How about:
Select Format(date_col, "mmmm yyyy")

That will give you January 2013
mmm will give you Jan
mm will give you 01

[[date-field] between [low-date] and [high-date]

see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFXzGdTSfTg

note, generally in sql: "between ... and ..." is the equivalent of:

[date-field] >= [low-date] and [date-field] <= [high-date]
