    I am able to extract the date in individual format and the time in the
    individual format but I can not extract the AM/PM from this string. How do I
    extract that part? I have tried using a and A for the AM/PM but that did not
    work. Can anyone assist me with this issue?

    K,
    As long as that field contains Time info, a format of something like...
    hh:nn a/p would give 10:00 a
    hh:nn AM/PM would yield 10:00 AM
    Check Format/Date and Time in Help.

    The type of data that I am using looks like this: 4/3/2006 8:52:36 AM
    I am working in a query pulling the different info in seperate fields to for
    different fields like this: 4/3/2006
    8:52:36 AM
    The Am does not follow regardless of what I type in to try and extract it
    from the data. The help sections talks about the basic format but these
    tables were created prior to my employment and the format did not work. Do
    you know of anything else that might work?

    K,

    The AM/PM isn't part of the data, but is a result of formatting the
    time for display purposes, which the query does automatically.

    If you just want the AM or PM, try the following:

    Right(Format(<date/time field>,"Medium Time"),2)

    Replace <date/time field> by your field name.

    This will format the date as a string ending in AM or PM, and then take
    the last 2 characters.

    You might be able to get away with just:

    Right(<date/time field>,2)

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!
