Hello,

Does anyone know how I can get the =MONTH formula to return ‘mmm’ instead of the number value?
For example instead of ‘1’ I would prefer ‘Jan’. I have attached an example of what I am talking about. I need column B to return the month from column C.

Hello,

try

=text(Month(C3),"mmm")

or format the cell with the number to custom format

mmm

Of course, you could also just use

=C3

and format the result with

mmm

Then only the month portion of the date will show in the cell, with three letter month abbreviation.

cheers, teylyn
