    Thanks will try to concatenate the #. I am good with storing data as either numbers or text - whichever works. As the source table is via ODBC, I can not change. The only workaround I know would be to create an non ODBC table with a date formated field and write a delete / append query - which I am better off posting in a separate thread.

    Yes you could, and use that table (or a query using the same technique to construct a date). What you need to consider is, what are the chances that any ODBC date data can be altered? If that ever happens, your calculated date is out of sync. Probably better to stick with calculating on the fly - even if your query (instead of a table) uses a function call to perform the concatenation.
