I have a combo box being populated from the below sql statement...below  "rowsource"
SELECT DISTINCT [dbo_t_dispensing_email_audit_history].[Notify_Processed_Date] FROM dbo_t_dispensing_email_audit_history ORDER BY [Notify_Processed_Date];

What I need:
The value being pulled includes a time stamp value such as
6/5/2015 1:21:36 PM

I need the value in the combo box to display just the DISTINCT DATES and NOT THE TIME ALONG WITH IT ?

you can also use the DateValue() function to return only the date portion of a date/time field:

SELECT DISINCT DateValue([yourField]) as ProcessDate
FROM yourTable
ORDER BY DateValue([yourField])
