Copy formatted date/time value to a 2nd form

I have a form which an expert helped me with to format a date/time field as:

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

This is working fine.  The date/time now looks like (for example):

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


But now on the form that this is displaying correctly on I have a command button that when clicked opens a second form.  On this 2nd for is a date/time field that I want to have display the value exactly as I see it from the 1st form.  I have tried this but it doesn't work:

    DoCmd.OpenForm "frmEDITEmployeeLaborTranx", , , "[LaborTranxID]=" & Me.txtRecordID
   
    Forms!frmEDITEmployeeLaborTranx.txtStartTime = Me.txtStart

  I'm getting this instead:

4/18/2014 8:28:03 AM  (with the seconds displaying.  How can I get rid of them?  The field is an unbound field.

try this:

  DoCmd.OpenForm "frmEDITEmployeeLaborTranx", , , "[LaborTranxID]=" & Me.txtRecordID
   
    Forms!frmEDITEmployeeLaborTranx.txtStartTime = Format(Me.txtStart,"m/d/yyyy h:nn")

That didn't do it.  txtStartTime shows the seconds which I don't want to display.

Change the Format property for that unbound textbox to either Standard or: m/d/yyyy h:nn
