Formula to add leading zero to months 19 of the year only.
I need to add leading zeros to month numbers JanSept only as sorting by month number does not work due to Months OctDec starting with number 1. If I sort by month number, it comes up like this.
1 (Jan), 10 (Oct), 11 (Nov), 12 (Dec), 2 (Feb), 3(March) ...
Does anyone have a formula for this?

If the month field is a text value try adding a zero in front of the value and then taking the right two digits using the formula below.
=RIGHT("0" + {YOUR_MONTH_VALUE_HERE}, 2)
Hope it helps!

That works, thanks so much!

You're welcome!

I typically add leading zeros using the LEN() function to see if a number needs it, nested into IF()s.
e.g.
=IF(LEN(MONTH({date}))=1,"0"+MONTH({date}),MONTH({date}))
