I am trying to convert a two digit Month (01,02 etc...) to (January, February etc..)

This is what I have, but it doesn't work:

$month = "02";
$date = strtotime($month);
$New_Month = date("F",$date);

Can anyone help? Thanks

change your middle line to something like

$date = strtotime($month . "/01/01");

Well, I would do it with smt like this :

$mth = 14;  //for example..skips december and go back to january

//you must fill in all the arguments if you want to make use of date function ;)
$month = date("F", mktime(0, 0, 0, $mth+1 , 0 ,0));  //plus 1 because month's array starts from 0

echo "month number is= $mth and month name is  $month ";

//result will be : month number is= 14 and month name is February
