Dear Experts

In an Access Query I need to be able to return the 1st day of the month from a field

the field is [Invoice Date]

so if [Invoice Date] = 15/10/2013 then the result should come out as 01/10/2013 etc.  This needs to come out as a date rather than a formatted text field

Can anybody help?

Many thanks

this will give you the first date of the current month or any given date

dateserial(year(Date()),Month(Date()),1)

use like this
dateserial(year([Invoice Date]),Month([Invoice Date]),1)

Try this:

FirstDay: DateSerial(Year([Invoice Date]), Month([Invoice Date]), 1)


EDIT:

Too slow.
