Dear Experts,

I have a database that uses a few fields that is of data type Date/Time, and want to use is as a time field, such as 6:13.
I am  able to display as such within Access, but when I export to Excel, the whole info comes, date, time with AM/PM.
How can I just export the way I am displaying?
Please advise.

Build a query that formats the field the way you want, and then export that query. For example:

SELECT Field1, Field2, Format(Field3, "hh:mm:ss") AS MyTimeField FROM MyTable

Save the query, and export it instead of a table.

try using a query and format the field, like this

select format([dateField],"h:nn")
from tableName

save the query
then export the query
