Experts,

I have 2 tables that I am trying to join.  I am using date fields to join on. The problem is that the fields are formatted differently.  What would be the best way to format them so I can join?  Here are the outputs:

Table 1
field name: report_date_run
5/12/2014 8:17:06 AM

Table 2
field name: report_date
12-MAY-14

I am thinking I would convert table 1 to match table 2 "Report_date".
