Format a date in Microsoft Access 2007 in a query

I have a query where I'm pulling the month from the date using a DatePart function:

Month: DatePart("m",[startDate])

How then, would I format this date to spell out the entire month?  I tried this

                             FullMonth: Format(DatePart("m",[startDate]),"mmmm")

but it's not working.  It's spelling out the complete months, but the months are all wrong.  

Thanks!

How about just

FullMonth: Format([startDate],"mmmm")

You could add more if needed (Year, etc)
