Default Index Part of Field

I have a Date/Time field that I want to index, however I only want to index the Date part of the field and not the time part.

Is there any way of doing this (in VB DAO)?

Regards
Owain Williams

I think there's no point to that. date/time fields are usually stored in 32 bits, so date and time cannot be separated. If you need the index for faster access, then putting the index on the complete field should work fine.

Otherwise I'm not sure whether you need an index at all.

Thanks for your help, I didn't think it was going to be possible.

What are you trying to accomplish? There may be another way of getting a solution to your problem.

Thanks for you interest in my problem. I am afraid it would take too long to explain my problem, and as it happens I have devised another (better) solution to the issue.
