How do I write a formula for a text field that displays a Date field and a Time of Day field?

Let's assume the Date field is called "My Date" and that the Time of Day field is called "My Time of Day". Let's also assume that you want the display format to be:

08-17-2001 01:01:01

Then the text formula to display the date and the timestamp fields together in one cell would be:

[My Date] & " " &

Right("0" & Hour([My Time of Day]), 2)

& ":" &

Right("0" & Minute([My Time of Day]), 2)

& ":" &

Right("0" & Second([My Time of Day]), 2)


Time input format

How do I build a time input format / syntax in a form? I want the field to make it easy for the users to input times and AM/PM.

Time of Day

Hi Bill --

There is a field type called Time of Day -- if you create a field with that type and add it to your form, people who use your app will be able to enter times in 12- or 24-hour format (for example: 3:40 p.m. or 15:40). Hope this helps,
