I have a field in a table set up as a Date/Time field with the format being General Date.  And then I have a form bound to that table and a date/time field on the form set to General Date.

But the form is only displaying the date and so is the field in the table.

I want it to display, for example, "11/12/2014 5:34 PM (no seconds)

How can I make this happen?

set the format property of the textbox control

dd/mm/yyyy hh:nn AM/PM (if you're a Brit)
or
mm/dd/yyyy hh:nn AM/PM (if you're in the USA)
