Returns Date containing the time for a specific hour, minute, and second.
TimeSerial(hour As Integer, minute As Integer, second As Integer) As Date
t = TimeSerial(hour, minute, second)
|hour||(Integer) number from 0 (12:00 A.M.) to 23 (11:00 P.M.)|
|minute||(Integer) number representing a minute|
|second||(Integer) number representing a second|
To specify a time (e.g. 11:59:59), the range of numbers for each TimeSerial argument should be in the accepted range for the unit; that is, 0–23 for hours and 0–59 for minutes and seconds. However, you can also specify relative times for each argument using any numeric expression that represents some number of hours, minutes, or seconds before or after a certain time.
When any argument exceeds the accepted range for that argument, it increments to the next larger unit as appropriate. For example, if you specify 75 minutes, it is evaluated as one hour and 15 minutes. However, if any single argument is outside the range -32,768 to 32,767, or if the time specified by the three arguments, either directly or by expression, causes the date to fall outside the acceptable range of dates, an error occurs.
The Pm.CreateDate method allows to set the value of the date and time together including milliseconds.
The Example uses expressions instead of absolute time numbers. The TimeSerial function returns a time for 15 minutes before (-15) six hours before noon (12-6), or 5:45:00 A.M.
tTime = TimeSerial(12-6, -15, 0)
