If the table in tab 1 starts at A1 and the table in Tab 2 starts in A1, you need to enter this as an array formula by using CTRL-Shift-Enter after typing the formula.

=MAX(--(A2=Tab2!$A$2:$A$9)*--(Tab2!$B$2:$B$9+Tab2!$C$2:$C$9))

Some other things to be aware of.

The date in column B and Time in Column C need to be in Excel date time values .  Integer for date and decimal for time.

Hope this helps.
