    Format Date (Access 2003)

    Could someone help me with the way to format the date in an unbound field. The field is: ="Summary for: " & [CN_MAR_DATE] The date displays as ex: 01/01/08 I want it to display as 01 Jan 08 (medium Date) I have set the format in the tables & queries but it still displays as above.
    Thanks in Advance.

    Re: Format Date (Access 2003)

    Here are two different ways of doing this:

    1) Set the Control Source of the text box to

    ="Summary for: " & Format([CN_MAR_DATE], "Medium Date")

    or

    ="Summary for: " & Format([CN_MAR_DATE], "dd mmm yy")

    2) Set the Control Source of the text box to CN_MAR_DATE and set the Format property to

    "Summary for: "dd mmm yy
