I have a date time field on a form displaying like:

1/13/2014 2:14:58 PM

But I want it to just display the time like:

14:14 (military time)

with no date or seconds.

How can I do this?

It's the Format property of the textbox bound to the field. It will work if the data type is Date.

It's an unbound text box that gets it's value from an afterupdate event of a combobox query.

That part of the SQL for the query is:

tblPreparation.EndTime AS TOC

Do I need to alter that somehow?

Yes and no. The checkbox returns a string.

You could try converting the value:

    Me!txtTime = TimeValue(Me!cboTime)

still using the hh:nn format, or - to force the time to a string:

    Me!txtTime = Format(Me!cboTime, "hh:nn")

or, if that fails:

    Me!txtTime = Format(TimeValue(Me!cboTime), "hh:nn")
