Change Past Date into Month as Written Text

Probably a simply question but I'm looking for a formula that is able to read dates in the past, and then fill a different cell with the month as text only.

e.g. The first 'offline' date would populate the offline month with 'October'

    Hi @Phil Parks

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.


    IF(MONTH(Offline@row) = 1; "January";

    IF(MONTH(Offline@row) = 2; "February";

    IF(MONTH(Offline@row) = 3; "March";

    IF(MONTH(Offline@row) = 4; "April";

    IF(MONTH(Offline@row) = 5; "May";

    IF(MONTH(Offline@row) = 6; "June";

    IF(MONTH(Offline@row) = 7; "July";

    IF(MONTH(Offline@row) = 8; "August";

    IF(MONTH(Offline@row) = 9; "September";

    IF(MONTH(Offline@row) = 10; "October";

    IF(MONTH(Offline@row) = 11; "November";

    IF(MONTH(Offline@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 week!
