I have a field in an access database that looks like this "05/08/1986 11:30:00 AM" and I want to query it to just get this, "05/08/1986".

How do I do that?

On your form, set the format property of that textbox to "Short Date"


You can also set the format property of the field in the underlying table or in the query itself to Short Date

You may use FORMAT function:

FORMAT(YourDateTime, "mm/dd/yyyy")

Coaster_brook_trout,

Was there something we should have done to make the responses more clear?

Take a look at EE's grading guidelines here:

A B grade means the solution given lacked some information or required you to do a good amount of extra work to resolve the problem. When closing the question, the asker should explain why a B grade was awarded.
