I have this data:
I need to make "Expr1" be in the same format as "PunchDT" so I can perform a comparison?

ID      EmpNum      PunchDT      Expr1
2151      00027      5/22/2013 5:58:00 AM      05/22/2013 05:58
2152      00027      5/22/2013 3:30:00 PM      05/22/2013 15:30
2153      00027      5/23/2013 5:58:00 AM      05/23/2013 05:58
2154      00028      5/22/2013 5:36:00 AM      05/22/2013 05:36
2155      00028      5/22/2013 4:35:00 PM      05/22/2013 16:35

Try this expression to get PunchDT in the same format as Expr1:

Format(PunchDT, "mm/dd/yyyy hh:nn")

Rey,

This was the original:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/Q_28137114.html

The DCount issue came up as a follow up within the original thread (a typo in my first comment), and was actually resolved by Pete's comment.  

Fwiw, your post and sample did not resolve the issue in that question of getting the output to match the spreadheet's format - there was another extraneous space in the query that needed to be removed (you can probably see this in the database you downloaded).

I posted an admin comment in the other question explaining the reason for the deletion.  That comment is visible to the author even though the question is deleted - but my intent was to start the four-day auto delete rather than immediately delete it.  Apologies for that.

Anyhow, if you have further issue with this feel free to contact me offline or use the Request Attention button if you want someone else to look at it.

This should be enough:

Expr1: CDate([PunchDT])
