DateTime Upload Images   Link   Email

Hello -- I wonder if someone might be able to help me. My problem is I cannot get a mass mailing Report for printing to show a Long Date rather it shows only a Short Date on the Report/letter. I have set the control source for the Date Time field in the Report as =Date() with a Long Date format. See 1:46 in Expert 6 02. However, it remains a Short Date. In addition, alternatively, I have tried setting the Report DateTime field control source to look at my open Letter Form using =Forms!LetterF!DateTime (with brackets). This does not work either despite the fact that the DateTime field on LetterF is a Long Date.  Do anyone have any suggestions in order to show a Long Date on my printed letter?  Thanks very much.

Have you tried changing the control source and coding the format?
=Format([FieldName],"Long Date")
or sometimes I've even had to do
=Format(CStr([FieldName]),"Long Date")

Thank you so much!   =Format([Forms]![LetterF]![DateTime], "Long Date")  worked for me.  I now have finally a long date in my letters!
