Hi,
Cell A1 shows the date and time using Now().
I wish a different cell to show that date minus 1 if the time is less than 08:05.
I have tried many permutations of datevalue and timevalue but i'm slowly losing the will to live.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the speedy response Andrew.
If I place that formula in a cell it just shows lots of hash marks, no matter how large I make the cell or whatever format I change it to.
Is there a way to use the IF statement in the target cell?
Such as
IF cell A1 is less than time 08:05 then show yesterday's date and time, else show today's date and time

Thanks again

Thanks for your time Andrew (no pun intended)
As you can probably guess, I will be asking a few more questions on here before I finish that workbook :)
