Extract Date From Timestamp

I have a timestamp field in a database and only want to display the Date. In the query I placed this: Date Received: Format([RItemTimeStamp],"Short Date")

Works fine however if I try to run a query to serach for a date range it doesn't give me all the days. Is there a better way how to truncate the Date of a timestamp so that I can sort it correctly?

Date And Timestamp

I am new at programming within Access, and I am trying to develop a simple database that will record a timestamp when an order is placed. I have tried the Now() function, but that will record the timestamp on the desktop which can be changed manually before entering the record. Is there a way to record a timestamp using a Unix server or another desktop from access?

Any help would be appreciated.

Timestamp For The Date Only

I'm trying to extract data from a SQL table that has the date timestamp datatype.

so it looks like this: 2005-03-29 16:57:06.007

How can I query for a date range while ignoring the time part of the stamp.

EX. a parameter query for a month worth of encounters using the above date format.

thanks in advance.

Entering Timestamp/Date Via Web Form

I'm very new to Access and this may be a REALLY simple question but ...

I have an Access 2000 db on a web-based server and a website form that inserts a record. Everything works properly but I now need to insert the date each time a record is entered. These records will not change or be updated once entered. I think there must be a way to have a hidden field in the web form which submits = Date() or whatever the right code would be.

The field I'm sending the date to is called "dateOfEntry" . Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance.

Extract Date From Filename

I think I am on the right track, but I am stuck with importing the date from my excel filename. Currently the following code imports all Excel files from the directory into a table in my database. The excel files are saved like "ABC_BNG_GTR_04012008.XLS" The numbers represent the date. I need for the date to be extracted and place in table into the "callDate" field. When I run my code, I continue to get a runtime error 13 - type mismatch. The code stops at the Mid() statement. What am I doing incorrectly? Thanks in advance.

Option Compare Database

Private Sub btnImport_Click()
Dim strFile As String 'Filename
Dim strFileList() As String 'File Array
Dim intFile As Integer 'File Number
Dim filename As String
Dim path As String
Dim TheDate As Date

DoCmd.SetWarnings False
path = "C:UsersChinaboyDesktopData"

'Loop through the folder & build file list
strFile = Dir(path & "*.xls")

While strFile <> ""
'add files to the list
intFile = intFile + 1
ReDim Preserve strFileList(1 To intFile)
strFileList(intFile) = strFile
strFile = Dir()

'see if any files were found
If intFile = 0 Then
MsgBox "No files found"
Exit Sub
End If

'cycle through the list of files
For intFile = 1 To UBound(strFileList)
filename = path & strFileList(intFile)
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel8, "sheet2", filename, False

'Inserts date in date column based on file name

TheDate = Mid(strFile, 12, 8)

CurrentDb.Execute "UPDATE sheet2 SET callDate =" & "'" & TheDate & "' where callDate is null"

Next intFile

DoCmd.SetWarnings True

End Sub

Need To Extract Month From A Date

Hi - I need to extract the month from a date via an SQL pass through query. e.g. if the date reads 19/02/2008, I need to have returned to me 'FEB', so that I can link the month (string) to another table.

I have though about "decoding" the date - I've seen that practice used in other scenarios, but never on a date format. Any suggestions?

How To Extract Date From Personal ID Number


I would appreciate if someone could help on this problem.
What I want to do is to add a field in a form that would automatically show the date of person's birth after entering the persons ID. For example, I enter 39101012345. The first number (3) shows only the gender so I don't need it. The next 6 numbers show the date of persons birth - it is 910101 and it means that the birthdate is 1991.01.01
I need this field in a date format because later I will have to do some calculations concerned with the birthdate of that person.

Thanks in advance!

p.s. beer for help is quaranteed! :)

Automated Extract - Date Field Using CSV - Version: 2000 (9.0)

Good morning

I've hit upon a problem and I'm tearing my hair out a little bit.

The problem is, when I export (whether manually or through code) a table which includes a date column, the date in the resulting file includes the time 00:00 at the end, and I cannot seem to get rid of it, no matter what settings I try.

Can anyone help me??

Many thanks

Problems With Timestamp

I have a timestamp field in a database and only want to display the Date. In the query I placed this: Date Received: Format([RItemTimeStamp],"Short Date")

Works fine however if I try to run a query to serach for a date range it doesn't give me all the days.

I then tried this: Date Received: DateValue([RItemTimeStamp])

but get the message that the this expression is typed incorrectly or too complex. Here is the entire sql statement for this query:

SELECT DateValue([RItemTimeStamp]) AS [Date Received], Count(EARNS_Data_tbl.RTransaction) AS [Total EARNS Received], Format([RItemTimeStamp],"Long Time") AS [Time Received], Count(EARNS_Data_tbl.Earns_Processor) AS CountOfEarns_Processor
GROUP BY DateValue([RItemTimeStamp]), Format([RItemTimeStamp],"Long Time")
HAVING (((DateValue([RItemTimeStamp])) Between [Forms]![PowerUserForm]![Start_Time_audit] And [Forms]![PowerUserForm]![End_Date_audit]))
ORDER BY DateValue([RItemTimeStamp]);

Timestamp, Multi-user Issues.

I use a timestamp field in my tables to help me with productivity metrics for about 6 individuals who use one of my databases.

The issue I have is that their system times are constantly "out of whack." We fix them, and it just happens again. It apparently another program on the computer that causes the issue, but I can't do anything about that.

Is there another timesource available for the timestamp when using now()? Is there a way to use the time of the server (shared) that the backend is on?

I have no idea how to fix this issue.:confused:

Help With Internal Timestamp - Version: 2002 (10.0) XP

I am stuck on this problem however I know the answer is most likely very simple.

I have a table that lists all the trucking companies our company uses. We have a form to enter new trucking companies into. They are then put into the table and sorted by truck name.

I want to be able to find out what trucking companies were put into that table in the past two weeks(or really any time period, a sorted list by date would be wonderful). I do not know how to do this because I have nothing in my table that relates to date, and there is no prime index autonumber.

Is there anything I can do?

Thank you so much!

Hi all,
TimeStamp does not work on one front end. It was copied from a front end that works just fine and continues to work just fine in the source DB and in other profiles where the copy was distributed.......
this code is

Private Sub Pounds_AfterUpdate()
Me.TimeStamp = Now()
End Sub

Again, this works in the source front end, and in other profiles on this same workstation, but not in one particular profile..........
any ideas????????????

Update UserID And TimeStamp In A Table - Version: 2002 (10.0) XP

I was planning to provide a form in datasheet view that will display the contents of a specific table. The table is updated with new records via a download from the internet. The table exactly matches the spreadsheet that is produced from the download. Deleting and adding of records will be allowed, but not editing. The primary key on the table would prevent the addition of duplicate records.

So I thought that users could just copy from the spreadsheet and paste into the datasheet view of the form.

However, I would like to have the USER_ID and TIME_STAMP fields of the table updated when this "copy and paste" occurs. The USER_ID would be the CurrentUser() and the TIME_STAMP would be Now().

Is there any way to get Access to do this? I know I can set the default value for the Time_Stamp to Now(), but I haven't had success trying to set the default value for USER_ID to CurrentUser(). Also, what if the Back End is SQL Server instead of Jet.

Further, is my plan for how to update this particular table reasonable or fraught with problems I'm unaware of or unintended consequences.

Auto Start/Stop Timestamp - Version: 2002 (10.0) XP

I'm looking to create a very simple database but am unsure how to go about this. What I am looking for is a database with the following records:

Order Number
Part Number
Start time
Stop time
Time elapsed (in 0.1 hrs format)

Is it possible to make a form that gets filled out where you type in the order and part number and click "start" to start it, and then click "stop" to end it. I need this to track the time it takes for each order.

Thanks in advance,
