Convert Numeric Value to Date
I’m having some difficulty trying to convert a numeric value into a date.
The table is link to a txt field. I’m unable to change the data type.
The numeric value that I’m working with looks like “20080911”
I tried using formula:
Format(DateSerial(Left([due date],4),Mid([due date],5,2),Right([due date],2)),"y-mm-dd")
When I run the query, I received the dreaded “Data mistype” error message.
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.

I have a CSV file that I import into an access database. The date field in the CSV file is in the format of 20100622 for 06/22/2010. How do I convert this field into a date field so that it will read as a date field? Once it is converted to a date, the field will need to be linked to another date in a different table. So the field types both have to be a date.
