[AccessD] Payroll

I was under the impression that the specification was to record a single start
time and a single end time for any day 
So - in the case of my incident having worked for a couple of hours before being
interrupted to deal with the car, that would mean about 6 hours worked for the 2
Note - shifts of at least 10 hours a day on that job! 
Usually 7am to 7 pm less, maybe, occasionally an hour lunch break. 

And the point being that specification is not only, not a good approach, but it
is probably deeply flawed!

Assuming an 8 hour work day, that's just 6 hrs on day 1 and 6.5 hours on day 2.
How/where you track the reasons for absences is an entrely different topic to
how you 
recordhours worked.

Let's not complicate the issue unnecessarily, Bob said ealier:

"I should have been a bit more clear.
I am only tracking the hours worked per day per payperiod."
