Date conversions between Microsoft SQL Server and Viewing in MS Access

Date conversions between Microsoft SQL Server and Viewing in MS Access

Date conversions between Microsoft SQL Server and Viewing in MS Access

After establishing an ODBC link to a local Microsoft SQL Express 2005 server through Microsoft Access, I have a table column called LKL_Date is displayed in military date format DDhhhhZMmmYYYY when viewed through the application user interface however, when I view the data in this column through Microsoft Access, the format of the dates display as numbers.

For example 061002ZMar2011 displays as 1299405720 when viewing the LKL_Date column in Microsoft Access.

The only way formatting is maintained is if I actually export the table from the SQL Server database into MS Access.

What format is being used when viewing this in access? I want to be able to convert the numbers back into a date format in order to build expection based reports when certain date criteria are met using the LKL_DATE column.
