    IsTime not available in VB

    IsDate determines if the date entered is a valid date, but there's not such thing for time. IsDate is available in VB but IsTime is not. why? could anyone develop this. seems so challenging though.

    IsDate works with times, too:

    Dim sTime As String
    sTime = "12:19 AM"
    Debug.Print IsDate(sTime)
    ' Prints True

    sTime = "12:62 AM"
    Debug.Print IsDate(sTime)
    ' Prints False

    I do not offer free assistance by e-mail. Thank you!

    thanks for the help, but my problem is determining whether the entered time in a maskedbox is a valid time or not. the syntax is this:

    If maskedbox = "__:__" Then MessageError: maskedbox.SetFocus: Exit Sub

    this only traps if there is no time entered, but if the entered time is invalid, like 03:61, it won't trap and generates an error/debug.
