TimeValue Function

Returns a Variant (Date) containing the time.


TimeValue ( time )

The required timeargument is normally a string expression representing a time from 0:00:00 (12:00:00 A.M.) to 23:59:59 (11:59:59 P.M.), inclusive. However, time can also be any expression that represents a time in that range. If time contains Null, Null is returned.


You can enter valid times using a 12-hour or 24-hour clock. For example, "2:24PM" and "14:24" are both valid time arguments.

If the time argument contains date information, TimeValue doesn't return it. However, if time includes invalid date information, an error occurs.


Note   Examples that follow demonstrate the use of this function in a Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) module. For more information about working with VBA, select Developer Reference in the drop-down list next to Search and enter one or more terms in the search box.

This example uses the TimeValue function to convert a string to a time. You can also use date literals to directly assign a time to a Variant or Date variable, for example, MyTime = #4:35:17 PM#.

Dim MyTime
MyTime = TimeValue("4:35:17 PM") ' Return a time.
