Time coversions between SQL Server 2008 backend and Access 2013 front end

I have an SQL Server 2008 table defined with 2 time(0) fields, but when I link to them through ODBC to MS Access 2013 front end, they come across as text fields. I need the server to hold an time(0) time with a medium time displayed in Access 2013. Where am I going wrong???

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is no direct equivalent in Access to data type Time.

Either change the data type of your field to DateTime (not DateTime2 which also will be read as text), or connect to your linked table via a simple select query that uses TimeValue or CDate to convert the text values to Date in Access; this, however, will be read-only.

In some cases, you can "see" newer SQL Server data types if you change your ODBC driver.  So instead of using the standard SQL Server driver, download the newest SQL Server Native Client driver which at this writing is 11.0
