I have an access database with a table called filings_tbl. In this table I have a field called "Date". The date field is formated as 10/2/2013. Is there a way to clear the contents of this field?

Unless the Field has the 'Required' property set, you should be able to delete the field contents.

BTW - NOT a good idea to used DATE as the name of a field (and its prohibited in some versions of access)
