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.
SELECT TimeValue([DateTime]) AS Expr1 FROM ProductSales;
Returns the time values of the field "DateTime" without the date information and displays in the column Expr1.
SELECT TimeValue([DateTime]) AS JustTime FROM ProductSales;
Returns the time values of the field "DateTime" without the date information and displays in the column JustTime.
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#.
MyTime = TimeValue("4:35:17 PM") ' Return a time.
