#Error on Access query fields


I am getting #Error on access query fields when I apply Cdate function to convert text date into proper date. How can eliminate this issue?

I need blank cell/null wherever it is #Error.

thank you

You need to check for Null before applying the CDate...Nz can be helpful
Expr1: CDate(Nz([YourField];0))

or if you don't want the date that looks like the year 1899, you could try:

Expr1: IIF(IsNull([YourField]), NULL, cdate([YourField]))

Or even simpler, for Null values:

TrueDate: CVDate([TextDateField]) 

Open in new window

However, if the values can also be invalid dates, you need a little more:

TrueDate: CVDate(IIf(IsDate([TextDateField]),[TextDateField],Null))

Open in new window
