MS Access: TimeValue Function
The Microsoft Access TimeValue function converts a string to a time.
TimeValue Function (Syntax)
The syntax for the TimeValue function is:
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:
- Access 2013, Access 2010, Access 2007, Access 2003, Access XP, Access 2000
|TimeValue ("3:12:57 PM")||would return 3:12:57 PM|
|TimeValue ("15:12:57")||would return 3:12:57 PM|
TimeValue Examples (in VBA Code)
The TimeValue function can be used in VBA code in Microsoft Access. For example:
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.
TimeValue Examples (in SQL/Queries)
You can also use the TimeValue function in a query in Microsoft Access.
