SECOND

Definition of SECOND

Returns the second component of a specific time, in numeric format.

Sample Usage

SECOND(TIME(11,40,59))

SECOND(A2)

SECOND(40909.0004)

SECOND("20:49:59")

Syntax

SECOND(time)
  • time - The time from which to calculate the second component. Must be a reference to a cell containing a date/time, a function returning a date/time type, or a number.

Notes

  • Ensure that the input to the function is either a reference to a cell containing a date/time, a function which returns a date/time object such as TIME, or a date serial number of the type returned by the N function.
  • SECOND does not autoconvert number formats. Therefore, SECOND(12:00:00) will return an error.
  • SECOND returns the intuitive understanding of seconds, and is useful primarily in other calculations rather than to extract the second component of a known time, as that value is easily known from a plain reading of the entire time.
  • Note that date objects that are created with the DATE function or by entry of a date without a time component will have a time of 0:00:00.
