Edit Form - Date Picker not showing original date

I have set a date value and with the date picker saved the entry, the date is saved just fine in my Access Web App. When I come to edit the form the date is not shown in the date picker, this is confusing as it appears no date is set. 


Am I missing a setting somewhere?

Hi Ian,


Are you sure that your date picker control is inside the Edit Form? As I tested, I cannot insert it into a edit form. Also would you pls be more specific about how did you create this app?

I created this app screen from a blank and inserted an Edit Form. The date picker is definately within the Edit Form, the form links to an Access Webapp through an SQL server connection. The date picker control was assigned automatically after choosing to show the field.

I had the same problem, solved it by creating a calculated column for date, as varchar in the sql server table. I use it both in displaying the value in the details form (since it doesn't show value as original format) and I use it in the reference field for Default Value.


In sql server on the table run query:

[Your Date Field Name TextFormat] AS (CONVERT([varchar](10),[Your Date Field Name])


In the report Edit form, mark the date field, choose advanced tab and change, under the Data section, the value for DefaultDate, to be "ThisItem.Your_x0020_Date_x0020_Field_x0020_Name_x0020_TextFormat"
