Using Microsoft Access, I am trying to associate the punch out time with the punch in record.  See attached spreadsheet, column I is what I am trying to calculate.

Over the group of employees with the same employee number, each record has a sequential id that puts them in order.  I want to be able to take the next record punch time and associate it with the current record and call it the "punch out" time.  While processing the current record, if the previous record had a "punch out" time calculated, then don't calculate one for the current record.

Best to look at attached file, column I for what I need done.

If you have no multiple in-outs during day, you can take min and max time. Look at sample

The problem with this solution is when an employee starts on one day and ends on the next.  Ie.
start 05/14/2013 at 2:30pm
end 05/15/2013 at 12:02 am

see attached file with example data added.

In your DB Employee Number is text, so in criretia you should add quotes around it:
"[EmpNum] = " & Chr(34) & [qryInOut00].[EmpNum] & Chr(34) & ....
