The VBA HOUR function is listed under the time category of VBA functions. When you use it in a VBA code, **it returns the hour value from the time which you supplied**. As you know a valid VBA time is made up of hours, minutes, and seconds so it takes hours and ignores the rest of the part. It’s just like the HOUR function in the worksheet.

To use VBA's HOUR function you need to understand its syntax and arguments:

### Syntax

**Hour(Time)**

### Arguments

**Time**: A valid time as per VBA from which you want to get the hour value.

## Example to use HOUR Function in VBA

To practically understand how to use VBA HOUR function, you need to go through the below example where we have written a vba code by usingit:

Sub example_HOUR() Range("B1").Value = Hour(Range("A1")) End Sub

In the above code, we have used HOUR to get the hour value from the time which we have in the cell A1 and it has returned 10 in the cell B1 as the time we have in the cell A1 is 10:34:45 AM.
