I want to convert a date time value in a date field to a different date field where only the date displays. strptime and strftime seem to need strings. I can use the field calculator to essentially copy the date time value to the new date field but I can't figure out what I want to do using python in the field calculator.

That was just too easy.

So, even though it is a date object you can still use a string method on it?
