Query to edit date format

Query to edit date format Icon
does anyone know how to edit for date format? For example, when I pull in a text file, one of the field is date and it would be in yyyymmdd, however sometimes if the user doest create the text file correctly then the date would be entered in as mmddyyyy or some other incorrect date format. So what I want to do is, once the file is pulled into a table I want to create a query to catch if the format is NOT in yyyymmdd. Is there a way to do this? maybe a function or something? please assist.
 

number to Date format

I have a number field which has date information in it. ex - 20110112 YYYYMMDD in that format. Don't ask why they didn't just make it a date format.

Right now a date conversion table is used. So when referencing that field it does a join on the number date and return the date format. Two field table. First column is 'number date format' and the second is 'return date format'. The table is manually kept up each year.

anywho,

Just trying to figure out how to format that into a Date format so that I can perform date function on it using sql so that I don't have to maintain the date conversion table
 

Calculating length of stay in form using Datediff

Calculating length of stay in form using Datediff Icon
I'm designing a form and I want to calculate how long our hotel tenants stay. So I have the form open and I am in the property sheet under the data tab. I am using the expression builder, and I see DateDiff has this format: DateDiff (interval, date1, date2, firstweekday, firstweek)

I put in this: DateDiff("d",([End Date],Date())-[Start Date])

I'm getting a wrong number of arguments error. I was also getting another error last night related to the "d" portion of the equation. Obviously I am pretty new and unsophisticated at this stuff so I thought I would check with the experts here for some

Changing date format for optional field

Changing date format for optional field Icon
I need to do some date calculations on an optional date field that is current in YYYYMMDD text format.

I can get the date to format by using:
DateValue(Format(CLng([Date]),"0000-00-00"))
However, it returns an #Error if the field is blank.

I'm trying to write in the builder to leave the field blank if it is currently blank:
iif(IsNull[Date],"",(DateValue(Format(CLng([Date]),"0000-00-00")))

Convert from text to UK Date ?

Convert from text to UK Date ? Icon
But took over a database that were created many years ago (upgraded from 2003), the Date of Birth are entered as text in the format of 01-Apr-1999

I try creating a new field in Data format but can't figure out how to convert using the content of the text field directly into the new Date format field (00/00/0000).

Some years ago when I were programming in Dataease, I would use the simple way for FirstC,MidC, LastC etc to convert them using the position and legnth of the string, but in Access, eventhough the principle should be the same...
