Hi ... need your help with a DateTime issue.  I have a script that runs via a job scheduler. When the 'job' kicks off, it passes the appropriate DateTime (it is not always NOW.  The script runs 24 hours a day at the top of the hour.  Sometimes a job is delayed by 15 minutes to 45 minutes, but will always use the top of the hour time).

The DateTime are passed automatically to my script via @@startDateTime@@ and @@endDateTime@@.  The format of these two parameters are "yyyy-MM-dd 00:00".

     @@startDateTime@@ = "2016-02-10 10:00"
    @@endDateTime@@ = "2016-02-10 10:59"

I need to return newStartDateTime = "2016-02-10 09:00" and newEndDateTime = "2016-02-10 09:59"
