This MSAccess tutorial explains how to use the Access TimeValue function with syntax and examples.
The Microsoft Access TimeValue function converts a string to a time.
The syntax for the TimeValue function is in MS Access:
TimeValue ( string_time )
string_time is a string representation of a time. string_time can be a time ranging from 0:00:00 to 23:59:59. string_time can be entered in either 12-hour or 24-hour clock notation.
The TimeValue function can be used in the following versions of Microsoft Access:
Let's look at how to use the TimeValue function in MS Access:
TimeValue ("3:12:57 PM") Result: 3:12:57 PM TimeValue ("15:12:57") Result: 3:12:57 PM
The TimeValue function can be used in VBA code in Microsoft Access.
Dim LTime As Date LTime = TimeValue ("18:30:12")
In this example, the variable called LTime would now contain the value of 6:30:12 PM.
You can also use the TimeValue function in a query in Microsoft Access.
In this query, we have used the TimeValue function as follows:
This query will take a string representation of "5:59:58" and return its time value in a column called Expr1. You can replace Expr1 with a column name that is more meaningful.
The results would now be displayed in a column called NewTime.
