Hour Function

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

Returns a Variant (Integer) specifying a whole number between 0 and 23, inclusive, representing the hour of the day.

Syntax

Hour(time)

The required time argument is any Variant, numeric expression, string expression, or any combination, that can represent a time. If time contains Null, Null is returned.

This example uses the Hour function to obtain the hour from a specified time. In the development environment, the time literal is displayed in short time format using the locale settings of your code.

Dim MyTime, MyHour
MyTime = #4:35:17 PM#    ' Assign a time.
MyHour = Hour(MyTime)    ' MyHour contains 16.
