Q: Date Format in Access

Hya folks,

I need to enter a date in a table in access, however instead of using a normal input mask of DD/MM/YY I'd like to use the format DD.MM.YY as this is in line with the date format of all our bespoke software.

I've tried editing the input mask list to no avail. I'd like to keep the field as a date/time field as we need to do queries using it.

Any ideas gratefully recieved .

Thanks

Hi all,

I have a report which is grouped by Month. The month is derived in a query using the month([date]) function. It comes up fine as the numerical month eg Jan = 1, Feb = 2 etc. In the report I want it to show the month name. I have tried the monthname function and format([month],"mmmm") but it comes up as January for all of them !!

I am about to throw the laptop out the window so would really appreciate help on this ! I am sure it is something really simple I have missed

Thank you

I have a column that I would like to change from text to date in Access. The dates are in one column and look like this: 5/20/04-0-6/20/04. When I try to change the format to the d/m/yy style, Access deletes all my date rows. Is it possible to have a date appear in one column as a time interval?

I stand to be corrected, but my answer is no. You can only have one date in a date field. The only way I can think to get round this is shown in my attached sample.

Can anyone give me a hand with this? I have imported some data into Access with dates written in the form mddyyyy (for Feb 14, 2005 it gives 2142005 and for Dec 25, 2006 it gives 12252006) i.e. they can be 7 or 8 digits long and are not formatted. The field is [date needed].

What I would like to do is show the records containing the date on a form sorting them in reverse chronological order. I set up a query to get the data from the table and set up my subform and then it seems I would have to dissect the date into year, month and day portions and sort each of them. [Maybe there's a way to handle dates like this built in but I do not know] It's easy enough to get the year with the right function as in Year: Right([date needed],4) but the days and months are a little more difficult since the leading month can be either 1 or 2 digits. Note that the days are always two digits i.e. 01 for the first of the month. If the month is 1-9 then there are 7 digits in the date and the month is the first character and the days are characters 2 and 3. If the month is 10, 11 or 12 then the month is the first two digits and the day the second two.

My question is whether this is the right way to do it and can a query field use some sort of if/then/else statement with the len function. What would it look like? If this could be done then I could use the Left function to get the month (i.e. first digit only when len = 7 and first two digits when len=8) and the mid function for the da... Read more

Hi to All!

I have a database of vendors. 2 of the fields are "Exp_Month" & "Exp_Yr". The data for "Exp_Month" is entered as "JAN" etc. The data entered for "Exp_Yr" is "01", etc. This was uploaded from a program called ADPICS and imported into Access.

I am trying to generate a report that will give me all vendors who will expire in 90 days. I was tying to make this happen in a query then would base my report off the query. But I'm having trouble with proper syntax for the date and year.

Hello,
I'm setting up a database and have several date/time fields, which I'd like to have in a custom format - Short Date (UK) plus Short Time format, with a hyphen separating.

I'm trying the Input Mask:
00/00/00" - "00:00

I also tried editing the Date Format to:
dd/mm/yy - hh:nn

But either option (or both) gives me an error message that "The value you entered isn't valid for this field".
I've tried a couple of variations, but I'm evidently missing the principle of how this works.

I'm sure I've done this before, but can't remember how to fix it - oh, and I can't really mess with the PC's regional settings.

I run a query for a quarterly report that has 8 fields, 2 of which are dates. The dates have to be in the mm/dd/yyyy format. When I run the query everything displays correctly. when I save the data to a table everything displays correctly. However, when I export it to a comma delimited txt file, the time also displays: mm/dd/yyyy 00:00:00. I checked the formatting for the 2 date fields, and they are both the 'Short Date' format with an Input Mask of 99/99/9999;0;" ". I also tried using other placeholders, which didn't work.

I can get rid of the 00:00:00 if I export it as a tab deliminated file, but then I lose the commas, which are a requirement. The report has to be a .txt file, with strings wrapped in quotation marks, dates (no time) in the mm/dd/yyyy format, and fields separated by commas with no spaces in between.

Are there any other places I should try to change the format, or tricks to make sure the date and only the date print? Or is it an Access glitch and I need to do a re-install? Thanks for any help.

Hi,
Hopefully this question will have a simple answer.
I am trying to create an unbound calculated control on a sales report that has date grouping by both month and year. The month group includes both a header and a footer, and on the footer I have a summary of all sales for that month. The control source for the unbound control is the following expression:

=[monthorderdate] & " Total:"

The problem is that it is formatting the date as dd/mm/yy, but I would like it to be formatted to show just the month, so that for example April's footer would say: "April Total:" instead of "4-22-03 Total:" I have tried various things but I'm not sure the proper syntax to use. The field it draws from is formatted as "mmmm" and that footer/group level is grouped on the month. So does anyone know what function I should include in my expression?
Any help appreciated in advance.

Good day guys

My puzzler today (and has been for ages) is this:

In my Access report, I pull in "StartDate" and "EndDate" fields from the calling form and wish to display them as part of a report subtitle.

I therefore have a field called "DateDetails" in my report header whose ControlSource is:
Code:
="Records Selected between " & Forms!Reports!StartDate & " and " & Forms!Reports!EndDate
The dates actually derive from a table and the date format for both fields in that table is "General Date".

The result is that the report shows the following as an example:
Records Selected between 17/05/07 12:00:07 and 10/08/07 12:00:07

BUT what I want is the following:

Records Selected between 17/05/07 and 10/08/07

or even nicer

Records Selected between 17-May-2007 and 10-August-2007

Can this be done in such a control?

Greetings, and thanks in advance for your help..

Awhile back I formatted my Windows 10 PCs to show ddd dd-mmm-yyyy on my taskbar clock. This worked happily on my desktop and laptop for months, maybe even a year +

Now (probably starting in the past couple days, if not today), on one of those two PC's, this format will no longer display. It is Okay on the other PC.
What has changed that the taskbar clock space used to expand to fit the "short date" format, but now it will no longer expand - and instead just refuses to display the date at all. (NOTE: I've verified the issue by testing shorter formats -- short formats, like "ddd" show up correctly. Only if you request a longer format will the date not display - evidently because it is too long for the clock area. )

Additional Notes that may help:

* "Working" pc is running build 10586 PC with too small a clock space that won't expand -- Build 14393

*Other differences: Notification/Action center Icon is left of clock on the working PC - Right of clock on the non-working
Right- Clicking on task bar gives "properties" option on working PC -- But "Settings" option on the non-working

( I don't want to prejudice responses - but clearly the implication to me is that some recent OS update is most likely the culprit.)

Hi all,

I'm new to Windows 7 (Home Premium 32-bit) and I just can't figure out what's going on here! Basically I want my short date format to be dd/mm/yyyy (UK format) e.g. 05/11/2010, but when I key a date into Excel 2002 it is appearing as 05 11 2010. In Control Panel I have the short date format set to ddd dd/MM/yyyy and the example is shown as Fri 05/11/2010, but in Excel all the date formats are shown with space separators, e.g. 14 03 2001! I don't think it's an Excel problem though as in Windows Task Scheduler the dates are shown with spaces there e.g. '19:25 on Mon 01 11 2010'. The date by the clock though is shown correctly with slash separators!

I know in Windows XP you can select the date separator from a drop-down list, but this option seems to be absent in Windows 7. Under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International in the registry, sDate was set to a space, but changing that to a slash (and rebooting) didn't fix the problem.

Does anyone have any ideas please what's wrong and how to fix it?

Hi Steven,
 
Thanks for the post!
 
When you set the Short date to ddd dd/MM/yyyy, the date by the clock is shown with slash, however, the date in Task Scheduler doesn’t show the slash. This behavior
is by design. When you double click the time and the trigger tab (for example) in task scheduler, the details are shown with slash.
 
When you change the Short date to dd/MM/yy, the date in the Task Scheduler and the clock become the same.
 
For the Excel date problems, I recommend you ask this question in

Hi there

I know how to do add a criteria to a Query. For example in the QBE pane in design view in the criteria row I enter this statement: Between [Start Date] And [End Date]. When I open up the form that is bound to the query, a message box pops up and I enter the required dates and I get the required data that is between the dates that I specify. However, I'm now finding out that this method is now becoming a nuisance.

Is there a way that I can have 2 unbound controls - one for the start date and the other for the end date in a criteria form. This way I input the dates I want for a particular customer and the form with the required data shows up. For example, I have already developed a criteria form for customers. I have an unbound combo box control that has customer names and when I click on a particular customer name, all the data for that customer is displayed in a form. In the row source of the unbound combo box control there is a SELECT .... FROM ... statement. I also have a button next to the unbound combo box control that opens up the form for that particular customer. Now I want to add two more Unbound controls in the criteria form, one for Start Date and another for End Date.

This way I can select a customer from the customer combo Box, select the start start date from the start date combo box and the end date from the second combo box control and get the desired data for that particular customer between the specified dates. I have attempted to do this bu... Read more

I just installed a split database on a non-profit organization's computer. In a table that contains date fields, I had set the date format to "m/d/yy" when defining the table fields on my computer. When I subsequently designed the input forms for the table, the dates show correctly in that format.

But when I installed the database on the client's computer, the dates show in "m/d/yyyy" format. I thought it might be because that computer's Regional Date Options were set to that format. However, I just experimented on my computer, changing the Regional Date format to "m/d/yyyy", then opening the database to see if the Regional format overrode the format defined in the table. It does not.

So. . . any idea why despite the date format being defined in the table as "m/d/yy" that on the client's computer, it displays as "m/d/yyyy"?

Just to clarify, does this mean the date within these programs appears in the American format, or (say) in the Programs and Features 'Installed On' column?

If it's the former, I think the only way to make the changes is in the options for those shareware programs, rather than in Win 7.

I also change my setting under control panel/regional settings, this still doesn't seem to work. Does anyone know how to do this.

I was searching for a way to enter dates such that they are interpreted in the US (not UK) date format, i.e. mm/dd/yy not dd/mm/yy. It was unresolved in this closed thread http://forums.techguy.org/business-applications/910502-us-uk-date-format-excel.html
Since I've solved it, I'd like to share the simple solutrion with interested parties:

1. Close all Office applications.
2. Open Control Panel>Clock, Language, and Region>Region and Language>Change the date,time, or number format.
3. Under Formats, use the drop down to select "English (United States)".
4. Then close and open Excel. From this point on entering 7/1/11 will give you 1 July 2011, and not 7 January 2011.

Don't forget change it back afterwards (unless of course you're moving to the US

You can also format the cells to your needs

Use the custom format
dd/mm/jjjj;@
mm/dd/jjjj;@

The ;@ forces the date to that format, you enter the date as you normally do so if it's Brittish dd/mm/yyyy and it will change to mm/dd/yyyy if the format is set to mm/dd/jjjj;@

What has to be clear for the use tis that he she has to enter the date as he knows ir should be

If they are used to entering day month year they will have to do that even though the format says different.

because February 1 2011 entered as 1/2/2011 will become 2/1/2011 in mm/dd/jjjj;@ format.

I hope I have been able to explain it,
The advantage is that you don't need to rememebr that you changed you country settings

I have a legacy application (Borland Paradox) that ran fine on Vista, but when ported to a Windows 7 PC running under Windows Virtual PC, it kept throwing
an error when querying dates. I have managed to track this down to the European format (DD/MM/YYYY) being interpreted as American format, i.e. MM/DD/YYYY. This is in spite of having the European format set correctly in both Windows 7 & the Virtual XP mode.
Is there a way out of this conundrum please ?

I am running WinXP-pro. When I print checks using Quicken 99 - the date always shows up in this format: "1/1/2006." (It never used to act that way when I was running the program on Win95). I don't see the "1/1/2006" in my long-date or short-date format in the control panel. And I don't see any formatting options for the date in the Quicken 99 program. Has anyone had this problem? thanks, thsh6

Did you check Regional & Language Options in control panel? Beside your language (for instance English (United States) click on the Customize button, click on the last tab - Date - to change your date format.

Hi,

There's a network, WinXP clients with a NT4 networkserver. When a user login (domain user) everything goes fine. But he or she want to change the date format to dd-MM-jjjj (Dutch) format. Keyboard settings, Dutch with US-International keyboard. That is not possible, an error message said "Not a valid date format". When I login as an administrator, there is no problem. Give (domain or local) user administrator rights, does'nt solve the problem.

Any ideas?

Hi All
Is there any way to give access to end users only to change Date format(from dd/mm/yyy to mm/dd/yyyy and vice versa). I don't want them to change the date just the date format.

Hi, I'm a new user posting here, but I've been using 7formus for a lot of time. The guides are just amazing. I installed Windows 10 yesterday and used a lot of registry hacks already.

I'm having a little problem with the new lock screen, and maybe you guys can figure it out.

I'm from Argentina, I use Windows in English but I choose Spanish (Argentina) in region and format in control panel.

What I can't figure out is how to get the day of the week and month with the first letter uppercase, here's a couple screens to show what happens when I choose English vs. Spanish

Spanish format, notice how the date on the lock screen looks just bad



And in English looks much better



Is there any way to make it uppercase in Spanish?

Thanks for any help

Yes, you have to edit your locale using Microsoft Locale Builder.

I have a column of dates in dd/mm/yyyy format, yet nothing I do lets me sort from oldest to newest.
Basically it doesn't recognize the column as having only dates, therefore only allows me to sore from A-Z.
I have tried what was posted on a few other forums, such as copy-pasting the column in notebook and
then back to excel. I've also tried the text to column wizard, with no help.
I've tried creating entirely new excel files and copy-pasting the dates there, either directly
or copying to notepad and then to the new spreadsheet. Nothing seems to work.
 

A:Can't change date format properly

they are not formatted as dates and probably text

can you attach here ?

click on the date cell and change the format to number or general
you should see a number like
42293
which is today 16th Oct 2015

I am perplexed. I have an Excel spreadsheet that contains 3 columns with dates. However when I see the spreadsheet the values do not appear as dates but as decimals - for example 39302.4652777778 . However, when I click and look in the formula bar - the date appears formatted correctly - 8/8/2007 11:10:00 AM. I tried to format the columns, pasting values in a new columns and even re-entering a date itself and still get the decimal even though the formula cell indicate that it is indeed a date. Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance

Using Windows 8 Pro (RTM)
Seems like the calendar app does not obey the language settings.
W8 display language is English (US I think) and that is the way I want it even if I want day names and time format as choosen in language settings.

Hints ?

Hi eager2008. Welcome to the forum.

Right click the app -> Uninstall

Reboot.

Open Store (tile) -> Mouse curser to upper right (Charms menu for store app slides out) -> Find (magnifying glass) -> type calendar. It will bring up the app to install again.

Please let us know if that works or not. Good luck.
