data and time merge issue

Hi all, 

 

I have a date field and a time field ... When I merge them (using the merge columns function, and inserting a space between the two AND than changing the field type to date and time the seconds from the time gets converted to 00 . So 3/2/17 09:07:16 is converted to  3/2/17 09:07:00  . 

 

Any ideas ? 

Thank you ...

Sure: "merge columns" is primarily meant for text columns.

 

Date and time columns have their own menu option: Combine Date and Time.

 

Just take a look at this very short video.
