Hi,
I have date string as shown above in my project. I need two catagories AM or PM Shifts of working. But the situation is AM should be upto 12:30 and PM is after 12:30 to rest of the time. Two different person works in this time frame with two different wages, So I cannot overlap the period of half an hour to next. The above solution only address for time frame 12:00 am. How can I get the solution to my problem.
