    if (!$conn) 
    {exit("Connection Failed: " . $conn);} 

$sql="SELECT Trainings.Date, Module.[Module Name], Trainer1.[Trainer Name], Employee.EmployeeID, Employee.[Full Name], Employee.Grade, Department.[Department Name], Trainings.TargetPax
FROM Trainer1 INNER JOIN ((Department INNER JOIN Employee ON Department.[Department ID] = Employee.DepartmentID) 
INNER JOIN (([Module] INNER JOIN Trainings ON Module.ModuleID = Trainings.[Module ID])
INNER JOIN [Training Details] ON Trainings.[Training ID] = [Training Details].[Training ID]) 
ON Employee.EmployeeID = [Training Details].[Employee ID]) 
ON Trainer1.TrainerID = Trainings.TrainerID";

I've never used access, but you should be able to do the processing using PHP

First, convert to returned datetime variable to a unix timestamp
Then apply the date() function to display just the bits you want.

$convert_date = strtotime($date);
$formatted_date = date("Y-m-d", $convert_date);
echo $formatted_date;

Should work...
