On a form I have a date/time field that displays like this:

4/18/2014 8:28:03 AM

But I want it to display like:

4/18/2014 8:28 AM  (with no seconds showing)

Now can I do that?

You will need to define a custom format for the control.

m/d/yyyy h:nn

If you don't have to update the value, apply the format in the RecordSource query.

Select ...., Format(yourdate, "m/d/yyyy h:nn") as formattedDate, ....

Here is my SQL view but it doesn't seem to like it...

SELECT tblLaborTranx.LaborTranxID, tblEmployees.FullName, tblLaborTranx.StartTime, Format(StartTime, "m/d/yyyy h:nn") as formattedStartTime,tblLaborTranx.StopTime; Format(StopTime, "m/d/yyyy h:nn") as formattedStopTime
FROM tblLaborTranx LEFT JOIN tblEmployees ON tblLaborTranx.EmployeeID = tblEmployees.EmployeeID
ORDER BY tblEmployees.FullName;

What error message are you getting?  If it is a message about duplicate names, then fully qualify the field names with table names when you use them in a function.

, Format(tblLaborTranx.StartTime, "m/d/yyyy h:nn") as formattedStartTime
