Hi All,

I am a novice in Smartsheet Functions and need some help.

How can I extract the month only (i.e. Apr) from Date column format e.g. Apr 6, 2021 in the same Smartsheet?

    Hi @Janice Phua

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You can use =MONTH(Date@row), and if you want to show the month name, you can use the below formula for that. Otherwise, it will show as a number.

    =IF(MONTH(Date@row) = 1; "January"; IF(MONTH(Date@row) = 2; "February"; IF(MONTH(Date@row) = 3; "March"; IF(MONTH(Date@row) = 4; "April"; IF(MONTH(Date@row) = 5; "May"; IF(MONTH(Date@row) = 6; "June"; IF(MONTH(Date@row) = 7; "July"; IF(MONTH(Date@row) = 8; "August"; IF(MONTH(Date@row) = 9; "September"; IF(MONTH(Date@row) = 10; "October"; IF(MONTH(Date@row) = 11; "November"; IF(MONTH(Date@row) = 12; "December"))))))))))))

    Depending on your country/region, you'll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic day!
