For 10ms accuracy you can use Timer.
For  1 ms accuracy you need to use API GetSystemTime.

Sample code for both methods:
Option Explicit

Private Type SYSTEMTIME
        wYear As Integer
        wMonth As Integer
        wDayOfWeek As Integer
        wDay As Integer
        wHour As Integer
        wMinute As Integer
        wSecond As Integer
        wMilliseconds As Integer
End Type

Private Declare Sub GetSystemTime Lib "kernel32" (lpSystemTime As SYSTEMTIME)

Private Sub Form_Load()
   Dim typTime As SYSTEMTIME
   
   GetSystemTime typTime
   Debug.Print Format$(DateAdd("h", -1, Now), "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.") & Format$(typTime.wMilliseconds, "000"), " 1 Millisecond accuracy"
   Debug.Print Format$(DateAdd("h", -1, Now), "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.") & Right$(Format$(Timer, "#0.000"), 3), "10 Millisecond accuracy"
End Sub

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
