Date Criteria in Access Query

In our retail store, employees are limited to the number of purchases they can make during our business day, which is from 4:00am - 3:59am (e.g., 3/1/11 4:00am - 3/2/11 3:59am is the March 1st business day) I have an access database that simply keeps track of the number of purchases made. I can do this easily if I only needed to keep track of purchases during the current calendar date, but I can't figure out how to do it for the current business day.

I have a query with the follwing fields: employee ID, timestamp, TransactionCount. To pull transactions for the current calendar day, I just enter "Date()" in the criteria under the Timestamp field. What I need is to see all transactions between today's date @ 4am and tomorrow's date at 3:59am.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Probably not the most eleqant solution, but you coudl try:
WHERE [Timestamp] Between CDate(Date() & " 04:00") And CDate(Date()+1 & " 03:59")
