This question already has an answer here:
I was looking to keep the date/time as is when using field calculator to keep the format as I'm not able to maintain the time in the new field "da". This is what I get when trying to do so. I tried searching for solutions, but to no avail so far.
Update based on comments:
I'm using field calculator to solve this.
I'm calculating into a date field from string field.
Data source is a shapefile
