In a bound text box formatted as Date/Time, I want to display only the month and day, single digit where applicable.  e.g.  5/9   12/31    1/1   10/4    6/28
What is the format string, and do I set the format in the table, or in the form control?

In the format property of the textbox  place   m/d

no need to set the format in the table, it should remain as Date/Time data type

Open the property sheet for the control.  On the Format tab, set the Format property to:

m/d

If you click into the field, the full value will show.
