Tech/Engineering / Basic syntax
English term or phrase: literal (n)
Examples
#8/6/1976 1:20 am#
#August 6, 1976#
#6 Aug 1976 13:20:19#
#6 Aug 1976 1:30:15 pm#
#8/6/1976#
#10:20 am#

Even though #10:20 am# looks like it could have the Time type and #8/6/1976# looks like it could have the Date type, they do not. They both have the DateTime type, as do all date-time literals. For example, you can think of #10:20 am# as a DateTime value with a null date part. To convert it to the Time type use CTime (#10:20 am#).

Instead of using date-time literals you can use CDateTime to convert a String to a DateTime. For example:

CDateTime ("8/6/1976 1:20 am")
CDateTime ("10:20 am")
