I'm trying to create a query that will convert the text fields that have dates in them to dates. I cannot change the table this is linked to, our group does not own it. I tried doing a cdate() on it, and it displays the test as a date. But then when I try to run a query based off of this one, to give me inbetween dates it returns all dates as if it is a text. I know my second query works, because I copy the table and changed the text to date fields and it works then. Any advice?
