  Dim Tstart As Date
    Dim Tend  As Date
    Dim sdate1 As String
    Dim stime1 As String
    Dim sdate2 As String
    Dim stime2 As String
    sdate1 = "23/04/66"
    stime1 = "10:10:05"
Here is a more thorough example.  Check your date format settings, locale etc.

    sdate2 = "24/04/66"
    stime2 = "11:25:02"

    Tstart = CDate(sdate1 & " " & stime1)
    Tend = CDate(sdate2 & " " & stime2)
    MsgBox DateDiff("h", Tstart, Tend)
