VBA MINUTE Function (Syntax + Example)


- Written by Puneet (Last Updated: June 22, 2023)

The VBA MINUTE function is listed under the time category of VBA functions. When you use it in a VBA code, it can get a minute value from a valid time value as per VBA. As you know a valid VBA time is made up of hours, minutes, and seconds so it takes minutes and ignores the rest of the part. It’s just like the MINUTE function in the worksheet.




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


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

Sub example_MINUTE()
Range("B1").Value = Minute(Range("A1"))
End Sub

In the above code, we have used MINUTE to get the minutes from the time which we have in cell A1 and in the result, it has returned 34.


  • If the supplied time value is NULL, then it will return NULL in the result.
  • If the value specified is a value other than a valid time or a string that can’t be recognized as a valid time, VBA will return the run-time 13 error.
