TimeValue Function

This page is specific to the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) Language Reference for Office 2010.

Returns a Variant (Date) containing the time.

Syntax

TimeValue(time)

The required time argument 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.

Remarks

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.

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.
