Adapt Excel Date Code For Access

I use the following code in Excel to format today's date like this .......
11th April     3rd April     1st March    14th May       31st July

EXCEL CELL Contains this (No VBA Used)
=TEXT(TODAY(),"d") & IF(OR(MOD(TEXT(TODAY(),"d"),100)={11,12,13}),"th",CHOOSE(1+MIN(4,MOD(TEXT(TODAY(),"d"),10)),"th","st","nd","rd","th")) & " " & TEXT(TODAY(),"mmmm")

Can it be adapted to work in Access 2013 ?

Try this.
=Format(Date(), "d") & Switch(Day(Date()) <> 11 And Day(Date()) Mod 10 = 1, "st", Day(Date()) <> 12 And Day(Date()) Mod 10 = 2, "nd", Day(Date()) <> 13 And Day(Date()) Mod 10 = 3, "rd", True, "th") & " " & Format(Date(), "mmmm")
