Need help with a Date Format Please.

P: 56
Hi all, I have a situation that is requiring me to make an Entry Date part of the Primary Key. Problem I am having is that it includes the time too.

What I have is an inventory return table.
It consists of 3 fields - Date, Serial #, Model #

Currently I have the Serial # & Model # taged as the Primary key -

But.....

Now I am being told that items might come back more than once...

The primary keys are set to prevent accidental re-entry

If I add the Date to the Primary Key, that should allow for duplication of the item - but not prevent accidental re-entry because the time stamp will always be different. (we use a scanner...so sometimes we get duplicate entries.)

So is there a way to store the date as a date w/o a time?


I am sure this is easy, and probly staring me in the face...but I am at a complete lost.

Thanks,
Sophie

If the date field is actually defined as date/time in Design View of your table, select the field then goto the bottom and click on Format, then select Short Date. How are you actually entering the date?
