How do I change the AM or PM to military time?

strMytime = "2:00 PM"

strNewTime = Format(CDate(strMytime), "hh:mm")      ' this only changes it to 2:00 not 14:00

THANKS

Ahhh... much better.  Any idea why it would show:
14:01 instead of 14:00?

NameSpace Microsoft.VisualBasic

MyStr = Format(MyDateTime, "hh:mm:ss tt")   ' Returns "05:04:23 PM".
MyStr = Format(MyDateTime, "HH:mm:ss")   ' Returns "17:04:23"

I'm only formating a string.

Dim strMyTime As String = Format(CDate("1:00 PM"),"HH:MM"))

Comes out "13:00"
