date to Value?

i m using vb6, what's the function will change a date stored in a string to a value?

for example, i have a date 12/12/2001 2:00:00 PM and i want change it to a value 47323.33513 what functiion should i use?

my idea is after convert it, i can compare the date,see which one is a later date. Or is there a easier way?


RE: date to Value?

MSDN says:

RE: date to Value?

In vb6 you can just do:
