I have an application people are using the 'scan into' work.

I want to store hours and minutes only, but am using "default value" of time$(); which returns long value (hh:mm:ss).  The reason it is important to not record seconds is that I want to ensure that a person isn't able to scan in twice (accidentally), so time is part of the key field.

how can I store a default value of hh:mm only?
