Hour Function Example

In this example, the TimeValue function creates a Variant of VarType 7 (Date) for midnight.  The Hour, Minute, and Second functions determine the hour, minute, and second values so the difference can be calculated.  To try this example, paste the code into the Declarations section of a form.  Then press F5 and click the form.

Sub Form_Click ()

Dim HourDiff, MinuteDiff, Msg, SecondDiff   ' Declare variables

Dim Instant, Midnight, TotalMinDiff, TotalSecDiff

Midnight = TimeValue("23:59:59")

Instant = Now                               ' Get current time.

HourDiff = Hour(Midnight) - Hour(Instant)   ' Get differences.

MinuteDiff = Minute(Midnight) - Minute(Instant)

SecondDiff = Second(Midnight) - Second(Instant) + 1

If SecondDiff = 60 Then

MinuteDiff = MinuteDiff + 1              ' Add 1 to minute.

SecondDiff = 0                           ' Zero seconds.

End If

If MinuteDiff = 60 Then

HourDiff = HourDiff + 1                  ' Add 1 to hour.

MinuteDiff = 0                           ' Zero minutes.

End If

TotalMinDiff = (HourDiff * 60) + MinuteDiff ' Get totals.

TotalSecDiff = (TotalMinDiff * 60) + SecondDiff

Msg = "There are a total of " & Format(TotalSecDiff, "#,##0")

Msg = Msg & " seconds until midnight. That translates to "

Msg = Msg & HourDiff & " hours, " & MinuteDiff

Msg = Msg & " minutes, and " & SecondDiff & " seconds."

MsgBox Msg                                  ' Display message.

End Sub
