I want my group header to display the month name in a report. I can't figure how to use the VB function monthname()-- it's not listed in my 'build' window.
What should I do?

TIA,..instanet

I would just use the format function (I haven't heard of the monthname function).  The way to do this:

Variable: MyDate

Put into a textbox control MyDate as it's source.  Set it's format property to MMMM

The way it works;
MM returns 01, 02, 03, etc.
MMM returns Jan, Feb, Mar, etc.
MMMM returns January, February, March, etc.
