Not sure if this will work, but attached a gif of table

I actually have the time broken down to blocks of 15 minutes where 12:00AM to 12:15 as block 2, 12:15AM to 12:30AM as block 3, 12:30AM to 12:45 as block 4 etc.. The days worked are broken down to a week number and day number since 01/01/2000 (Monday is day 1)

I have a fKey to employee, week number, day number, timein and time out

If the lapse time is 1 hour 30 minutes or more, we are not required. Like wise if the lapse time is 0 (back to back) such as task 1 ending at 11:00AM and then task 2

> Are the times in DateTime columns (which are easy to compute) or Char type columns? There's no Time data type in VFP.
> Is every row a different task than the preceding row, timewise? Can the same task resume after a break?
