Can I extract the month or year from a date column for a formula...


...without creating separate columns for Month and Year like in this screenshot where formula for Verbal Agreement Month is =MONTH([Date of Verbal Agreement]@row) and formula for

Verbal Agreement Year is =YEAR([Date of Verbal Agreement]@row)

Thank you!

    Hi Andrée,

    An example of what I clearly did not state in my question... (sorry!)

    I'm trying to count the number of rows that match this criteria:

    • the Sales Status is "Verbal Agreement"
    • the Verbal Agreement is in May 2022

    Can I extract the month and year from the date column (showing 5/23/22 above) in a formula or do I need to create two columns (one for Month and one for Year) in order to create the formula. The formula below works but I wanted to try to avoid having to create additional columns.

    =COUNTIFS({Sales Status}, "Verbal Agreement", {Verbal Agreement Month}, "5", {Verbal Agreement Year}, "2022")

    Hopefully this clarifies my question? Thank you!
