Default compare time in IF statement

hi,

case 1
i have this column, with time in US locale and in the format H:MM , for
example, 9:30 in cell M2

My VBA code tries to compare

if range(M2).value = time(9,30,0) then DO SOMETHING

just fails to work..
---------------------

case 2,
when i tried to convert the whole column to text, 9:30 becomes 0.39583333,
the time serial code.
but its still useless when I write if range(M2).value = 0.39583333 then DO
SOMETHING




thnks.

Try something like

If Range("M2").Value = TimeSerial(9,30,0) Then
' do something
End If

One way:

Case 1:

If Range("M2").Value = #9:30:00# Then

Note that Time(9,30,0) gives a type mismatch error. You could use
TimeSerial(9, 30, 0) instead:

If Range("M2").Value = TimeSerial(9, 30, 0)Then

Case 2:

XL stores values to 15 digits of precision, so 9:30:00 =
0.395833333333333, which is why your comparison didn't work. Even then,
small rounding errors make exact comparisons difficult. You might think
of using something like:

If (CDbl(Range("M2").Value) - 0.395833) < 1e-6 Then

(1 second is a bit more than 1e-5.

I think I'd use:

If abs(CDbl(Range("M2").Value) - 0.395833)) < 1e-6 Then

to cover both sides of 9:30
