FormatDateTime Function
Language Reference |

See Also

Returns an expression formatted as a date or time.



The FormatDateTime function syntax has these parts:

Part Description
Date Required. Date expression to be formatted.
NamedFormat Optional. Numeric value that indicates the date/time format used. If omitted, vbGeneralDate is used.

The NamedFormat argument has the following settings:

Constant Value Description
vbGeneralDate 0 Display a date and/or time. If there is a date part, display it as a short date. If there is a time part, display it as a long time. If present, both parts are displayed.
vbLongDate 1 Display a date using the long date format specified in your computer's regional settings.
vbShortDate 2 Display a date using the short date format specified in your computer's regional settings.
vbLongTime 3 Display a time using the time format specified in your computer's regional settings.
vbShortTime 4 Display a time using the 24-hour format (hh:mm).

Note: Since all the Named Formats related to the date are relative to regional settings, the only way to consistantly get a date in a standard format is to build it with the month, day and year functions. For example, inserting a date and time into an SQL expression would need something like:  month(datetime)&"/"&day(datetime)&"/"&year(datetime) & " " & FormatDateTime(datetime,4)
