TimeValue Criteria

Hi all,

I have a query that extracts the Time portion of a date/time field using TimeValue([Field]).

How do I specify the criteria now on that extracted portion to give me only the returned values of 12:00:00AM?

I have tried #12:00:00 AM# and TimeValue("12:00:00 AM") and all i get is data mismatch?

Thanks
Sean

Try this -

Subtract the integer part of the time, and convert back.

For the current date/time:

cdate(now() - int(now()))

Or for a date/time field:


cdate(YourDateTimeField - int(YourDateTimeField))

You can also use the Format function:

Format(YourDateTimeField, "hh:nn:ss")

I am already extracting the time portion. I want to know what to use in criteria for 12 am.

Sorry - I think I totally misread your question.  

Give this a try for criteria to just return records with 12:00:00 AM as the time part:

WHERE TimeValue(YourField) = "12:00:00 AM"
