Crystal 2008 & SQL

I am creating a report using Crystal Reports 2008 connecting via ODBC to a SQL database. All of my fields are coming across correctly with exception of "Scheduled_Date", according to the Field Explorer in Crystal, it shows my field with a Field Type of "Number". How can I change this in Crystal to a Date so it will display properly. I can not make any changes in the SQL database as it is proprietary.

Help, I am new to Crystal reports.

In order to change the field type to date, create a formula as:


and then use this formula in the designer.

Hope this helps!
