What would be the best way to convert this to 12/09/09? I could create a new field in the table and run an Update query using the Format command possibly?
I tried converting it on the form but no Date options were available

Would CDate work? If so, how would I write it VBA format or SQL (not very familiar with it though)?

The problem is that the data is stored as text and not as date type of data, which makes it difficult to do mathematical procedures on that type of data

In a query I have the birthday month and date. However, I want to sort by date, but it is datatype text so 11 and 12 etc come before 2, 3 and 4. If I could "cast" or change the datatype to Number (probably Byte), then I could sort it correctly. Can anyone advise how to make the text digits act as numbers
