calculating time values in query

i have attached sample db.
open database- the query [qryRoundTo8]-is a create table query- it creates [tblMain]-
it queries tbl1M- and if the ClockIn field is 8:05 or less- it changes it to 8:00

I want to change it so - if it is 7:45 am to 7:59 am- it also changes to 8:00 ( both conditions cause it to change to 8:00 am
I also want to change ClockOut Field to go back to 4:30 pm - if it is between 4:31 pm to 4:45 pm.

thank you

This seems to be working:

SELECT fdate, 
    IIf(TimeValue([MaxOfIn]) >= #7:45:00# And TimeValue([MaxOfIn]) <= #8:05:00#, DateValue([MaxOfIn]) + #8:00:00#, [MaxOfIn]) AS ClockIn, 
    MaxOfLunch AS Lunchtime, 
    MaxOfRLunch AS Returned, 
    IIf(TimeValue([MaxOfOut]) > #16:30:00# And TimeValue([MaxOfOut]) <= #16:45:00#, DateValue([MaxOfOut]) + #16:30:00#, [MaxOfOut]) AS ClockOut, 
INTO tblMain
FROM tbl1M;

Are you tring to round the times to the nearest quarter hour?  If so, what are the rules for the other three?  In fact after reading your question again, I really have no idea what you are asking.  Please try again.

And what about the 8:07 arrival and the 4:47 departure?
This formula should work, just replace with the date fields for the other values.

In: DateAdd("n",Round(DateDiff("n",DateValue([MaxOfIn]),[MaxOfIn])/60,0.5)*60,DateValue([MaxOfIn]))
davetoughAuthor Commented:
8:07 arrival should be 8:07
and 4:47 should be 4:47
only thing changes when it is between 7:45 and 8:05   / and 4:30 and 4:45

I plugged in your code for clock in- thought it was working - but when I used 7:44 it still displayed 8:00 and when I used 8:06 - it still went back to 8 -
maybe i am not doing correctly

You could use multiple queries or one custom function like:

Function UpdateTime(dTime As Date) As Date

        If TimeValue(dTime) > #7:45:00 AM# And TimeValue(dTime) <= #8:05:00 AM# Then
            UpdateTime = #8:00:00 AM#
            If TimeValue(dTime) > #4:31:00 PM# And TimeValue(dTime) <= #4:45:00 PM# Then
                UpdateTime = #4:30:00 PM#
                UpdateTime = TimeValue(dTime)
            End If
        End If

End Function

See copy of query in the attached.
