Second function (LotusScript® Language)

Returns the second of the minute (an integer from 0 to 59) for a date/time argument.


Second ( dateExpr )



Any of the following kinds of expression:

  • A valid date/time string of String or Variant data type.

    For Notes® and Domino®, a 2-digit designation of a year is interpreted so that 50 through 99 represent the years 1950 through 1999 and 00 through 49 represent the years 2000 through 2049.

    For SmartSuite®, LotusScript® interprets the years differently. For more information, see the Year 2000 item on the Help menu of each SmartSuite® product.

  • A numeric expression whose value is a Variant of DataType 7 (Date/Time).
  • A number within the valid date range: the range -657434 (representing Jan 1, 100 AD) to 2958465 (Dec 31, 9999 AD).
  • NULL.

Return value

Second returns an integer between 0 and 59.

The data type of Second's return value is a Variant of DataType 2 (Integer).

Second(NULL) returns NULL.
