if your datatime is a formula then use

ToText({MyDate}, "dd-MMM-yyyy") or something similar

if your datetime is a field I suggest you to use other format option

Do you intend to use your formula for display or in the record selection criteria?  If you use it in the record selection criteria then it won't be passed to the database server for processing.  How are you going to use the formula?
