Format date in SQL Query for VB6 app

I am trying to pull data from an Oracle database to populate a MSHFlexgrid in a VB6. The date field is showing up at "mm/dd/yyy 00:00:00"

This is my query: "SELECT job, prog, add_edit_date, order_status, edited_by From JOBNO_PROGNO WHERE (ORDER_STATUS = 'A')  ORDER BY prog, job"

Isn't there a way to format the date inside the query?

Yes, use TO_CHAR and a format mask to convert the date to a string:

 "SELECT job, prog, to_char(add_edit_date,'MM/DD/YYYY') add_edit_date, order_status, edited_by From JOBNO_PROGNO WHERE (ORDER_STATUS = 'A')  ORDER BY prog, job"

What format do you want it to appear in?
