If you always want that range simply use a formula like this for the select expert


 {date.field} in DateTime(CurrentDate - 1,Time(14,00,00)) to DateTime(CurrentDate,Time(04,00,00))

If you simply want to always run from 4 pm yesterday to 2 am today, then you can use this logic in your record selection formula:

{table.datetimefield} in datetime(currentdate-1,time(16,0,0)) to datetime(currentdate,time(2,0,0))
