Exceptions

Examples

The following 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 Date variable.

Dim thisTime As Date
thisTime = TimeValue("4:35:17 PM")

Remarks

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

If the StringTime argument includes date information, TimeValue does not include it in the returned value. However, if StringTime includes invalid date information, for example "January 32," an InvalidCastException error occurs.
