When a DataSet date is changed and the DataTable updated, the table appears to loose the time portion entered and default to midnight.I have set the table format to general time to view the entire date and the date portion gets carried over but the time is always 12:00 AM. The DataSet cell is changed to an arbitrary Date portion and the Time portion is appended to it and then the table updated. I have tried several schemes to append/add the time portion to the date portion but all fail . ie:-DatePortion.add(Time as timeSpan), DatePortion &" " & Cdate(TimePortion.text) I am sure this is a simple fundamental issue I am missing. Thanks for any direction here.
