Number between 100 and 9999, inclusive, or a numeric expression
Any numeric expression to express the month between 1 and 12
Any numeric expression to express the day between 1 and 31
A Date representing the date specified by the arguments
Returns a Date whose value is specified by the three date components (year, month, and day).
For the function to succeed, all three components must be present, and all must be numeric values. The value returned by the function takes the short date format defined by the Regional Settings applet in the Control Panel of the client machine.
If the value of a particular element exceeds its normal limits,
DateSerial adjusts the date accordingly. For
example, if you tried
DateSerial(96,2,31) — February 31,
1996 — DateSerial returns March 2, 1996.
You can specify expressions or formulas that evaluate to individual
date components as parameters to DateSerial. For
DateSerial(98,10+9,23) returns 23 March
1999. This makes it easier to use DateSerial to
form dates whose individual elements are unknown at design time or
that are created on the fly as a result of user input.
