How to Filter Column based on Current Date For Specified Range of Time

We want to Filter a DataTable with Column having Name “Instruction Date Time” with all data in Range of date that is"27/01/2021 17:00:00" to"27/01/2021 17:30:00" and remove data which contains time before “17:00:00”. and Time after “17:30:00”

Kindly suggest us the logical flow for same.

Filter data table activity could be used

DATATABLE.Select(“[DateColoumName] >= #”+PeriodInit.ToString +“# AND [DateColoumName] <= #”+PeriodEnd.ToString+“#”).CopyToDataTable

var PeriodInit = 27/01/2021 17:00:00
var PeriodEnd 27/01/2021 17:30:00

Change the variable accordingly

dt1.AsEnumerable().Where(Function (row) row(“Instruction Date Time”).ToString>“27/01/2021 17:00:00” And
row(“Instruction Date Time”).ToString<“27/01/2021 17:30:00”). CopyToDataTable
