Hello,

I am writing an import routine to import data from an Excel spreadsheet into a SQL Server database.  The problem I am having is that one of the columns has a formatting on it and I can't retrieve the data as it appears.  Here is the info about this column:

Column name:         AS4TIME
Visual Appearance:   12:42:49
Fx (formula bar):    12:42:49 PM
Formatted as text:   0.529733796

My code is as follows:

pxlSheet.Cells(lngCurrentRecord, TIME_COL).Value
This returns:  0.529733796, which is unacceptable

so I tried:
pxlSheet.Cells(lngCurrentRecord, TIME_COL).Text
This returns: 12:42:49, which is what you see when you view the spreadsheet, but I need that 'PM' that appears in the formula bar.

I don't want to modify the sheet in any way.  Any help in retrieving 12:42:49 PM from this cell would be greatly appreciated
