    Is there a way in a query or after doing a make table query to change the
    date formating? I need to change all the dates of a data set, without
    changing the table, so in a query or a new table, that is a make table query.
    I need to change them from the format of 7/18/2005 to 07182005. Does
    anyone have any suggestions???
    Thanks,
    Chris

    No problem - you do not format dates in a table - only in the display such as
    query, form, or report.
    Format([YourDateField],"mmddyyyy")

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
