Returns a whole number between 0 and 59, inclusive, representing the second of the minute.
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 Second
function to obtain the second from the current time:
Dim MyTime, MySec
MyTime = Now
MySec = Second(MyTime)
The following example returns a second value of 59:
MySec = Second("13:59:59.999")
