I have a DB where I calculate the work shift based on the time of day , I have the time of the day form a Timestamp field , it has "dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss a.m./p.m." format, I used the Datepart function to obtain the Hour and set the shift based on it but now I need to define the shift based on half hours and I dont know what function I need to use to obtain the time of the day on a "hh:mm" format and then use it on IIF function to obtain that shift number

any help will be appreciated

I don't know of 'A' function to do that but simple string manipulation will get it for you.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. t: CStr(DatePart("h",Now())) & ":" & CStr(DatePart("n",Now()))
