    The matrix:
    Col A Col B Col C
    2012-11-08 07:26:16 Check-In John
    2012-11-08 13:23:58 Check-Out John
    2012-11-08 13:24:01 Check-In John
    2012-09-27 07:34:13 Check-In Marie
    2012-09-27 17:35:31 Check-Out Marie
    2012-09-28 07:10:16 Check-In Marie
    2012-09-28 17:34:40 Check-Out Marie

    The goal:
    Since i have a given:
    1. Name(which exists in column C)
    2. Date (which exists in column A - formated has (AAAA-MM-SS HH:MM:SS)
    3. Event (which exists in column B)
    4. Hour*

    I want to know the nearest hour that matches all criterias.

    In the example on top, if i give:
    John, 2012-11-08, Check-In, 14:00:00
    I want the result: 13:24:01

    If, for example, the date doesn't exist, the result could be a simple error message.

    Anyone can help me?

    Thanks in advance!
