I've used a query in Access to pull out just the date from a date/time field. As far as I can recall, I created a column with a value of something like DateValue([FieldName])

By the way, replying to your own message with a "please hurry" is actually more likely to slow down the response, or even prevent you getting one.

If someone is skimming through the forum looking for new messages they could miss yours, because it already has a reply.

Sorry, I don't have anything handy here right now. However, try this.

Make a new query in Design view. Add your table to it. Set it to show "*" (all fields). Add another two columns, pasting in these values as the "Field:"
DateOnly: DateValue([DT])
TimeOnly: TimeValue([DT])
(Note, I've assumed your field name is DT. Adjust as necessary.)

This will provide a view of your table with the date and time as two extra fields. Your code can then use the query instead of the table.

I don't know VB.Net very well, perhaps someone else here can help with that part?

I just figured it would be much simpler if Access gave you the date and time values separately, so you don't have to split them.
