VBA Date Time Manipulation


VBA supports 2 calendars : Gregorian and Hijri

The Calendar property is used to modify or display the current calendar.

The 2 values for the Calendar are:


Sub CalendarExample()
 'Cache the current setting.
 Dim Cached As Integer
 Cached = Calendar
 ' Dates in Gregorian Calendar
 Calendar = vbCalGreg
 Dim Sample As Date
 'Create sample date of 2016-07-28
 Sample = DateSerial(2016, 7, 28)
 Debug.Print "Current Calendar : " & Calendar
 Debug.Print "SampleDate = " & Format$(Sample, "yyyy-mm-dd")

 ' Date in Hijri Calendar
 Calendar = vbCalHijri
 Debug.Print "Current Calendar : " & Calendar
 Debug.Print "SampleDate = " & Format$(Sample, "yyyy-mm-dd")

 'Reset VBA to cached value.
 Calendar = Cached
End Sub

This Sub prints the following ;

Current Calendar : 0
SampleDate = 2016-07-28
Current Calendar : 1
SampleDate = 1437-10-23
