The user has requested that on certain documents created from our application, the date (for example 01/14/14) be shown in the format:

January, 14 2014

I am currently using the 'Long Date' format which show '01/14/14' as

Tuesday January, 14 2014.

What is the date format to present dates in the requested format.

You can use this format instead:

"mmmm, dd yyyy"

"mmmm" tells Access to show the full Month Name (like "March" instead of "Mar")

"dd" tells Access to show the day of the month with a leading 0 as neded

"yyyy" tells Access to show the full 4 digit year.
