We know that if there exists an element of a given order in a group, there also exists a cyclic subgroup of that order. What about converse?

Suppose there is a subgroup of an Abelian group of order 'm'. Does that imply there also exists an element of order 'm' in the Group. It does not hold in general for Non-Abelian groups. But what about Abelian groups?
