I've just created a site using cold fusion & an access database. It was my first time using CF so its all a bit new to me. In one of the forms on the page you have a choice of dates from a drop down menu. However while i have the date format set to short date in the Access database when you view the page in a browser you get a long date with some kind of default time: '2003-05-12 00:00:00' Basically i don't want the time '00:00:00' to be stuck on to the end. Where am I going wrong. Is there something in CF overriding the Access format??
