  • where is a text string that represents time

TIMEVALUE() returns the decimal representation of time entered by a text string.



For Example,

TIMEVALUE("7:00 PM") returns 0.7916666666642413

  • Argument can be the time in a time format, considering a 24 hour clock from 0:00:00 (12:00:00 AM) to 23:59:59 (11:59:59 PM).
  • should be enclosed in quotation marks (e.g. "12:00 PM" or "20:30").
  • The decimal output of time value is in the range from '0' to '0.999988426'. e.g. 12:00 PM is half of a day, represented as '0.5'.
  • If is entered in day time format, date value is ignored. e.g. In "4-FEB-2010 4:00 PM", date value is ignored.
  • If any arguments are invalid, Calci returns an #ERROR message.
