Returns a whole number between 0 and 23, inclusive, representing the hour of the day.
The time argument is any expression that can represent a time. This includes a time value such as 12:30 or 1:27:55, a time/date value such as 11/12/1999 12:33:00, or a date value such as 11/12/1999. If only a date is specified, the time defaults to 00:00:00. Fractional seconds are permitted, but ignored; they are truncated, not rounded.
The following example uses the Hour
function to obtain the hour from the current time:
Dim MyTime, MyHour
MyTime = Now
MyHour = Hour(MyTime) ' MyHour contains the number representing
' the current hour.
The following example returns an hour value of 13:
MyHour = Hour("13:59:59.999")
