    date format in design table view (97 2)

    I need to format a date in the design view of the table as MM/DD/YY. short date does not give me MM in the case of a one digit month. I used the format MM/DD/YY and it worked fine in the table until I exported the table to a txt file then it also gave me this 10/15/2007 0:00:00

    Thanks for your help

    Re: date format in design table view (97 2)

    Create a query based on the table. Add the fields you need, but instead of the date field, use a calculated column:
    <code>
    FormattedDate: Format([DateField],"mm/dd/yy")
    </code>
    where DateField is the name of your date field. The Format function returns a text value in the specified format. This should be exported "as is".
