How do I create a 24-hour workshift that starts at 7:30AM each day?

How do I create a 24-hour workshift that starts at 7:30AM each day?

(OP)
How do I create a 24-hour workshift that starts at 7:30AM each day? There are 3 shifts A,B,C that rotate thru the year. I have a date and time field to use in my table. Help?

RE: How do I create a 24-hour workshift that starts at 7:30AM each day?

To get the right dates, try subtracting 7.5 hours from the datetime for your calculations. Something like this:

DateAdd('n', -30, DateAdd('h', -7, {MyTable.DateTimeField}))

You would still display the correct times, but this would set things up so that the overnight shift that would be considered part of the prior day is included in the prior day's numbers.
