Can I eliminate the Time component of the Date/Time field in Base?

I require two date-related fields in my database: date a test was done and patient’s date of birth. However, there is a time field as well. How do I eliminate this?

Not sure that I fully understand your query, but there are three possible selections for the Field Type in the embedded HSQL database - Date, Time and Date/Time (timestamp).

For just a date select the Date type and then in the format example select the “…” box to set the format you desire.
