Day 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 1 and 31, inclusive, representing the day of the month.



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


If the Calendar property setting is Gregorian, the returned integer represents the Gregorian day of the month for the date argument. If the calendar is Hijri, the returned integer represents the Hijri day of the month for the date argument.

This example uses the Day function to obtain the day of the month from a specified date. In the development environment, the date literal is displayed in short format using the locale settings of your code.

Dim MyDate, MyDay
MyDate = #February 12, 1969#    ' Assign a date.
MyDay = Day(MyDate)    ' MyDay contains 12.
