I am pretty sure at some point in the past I have setup a view to group by Year and then month. But for the life of me I cannot find it and I am not having any luck with new code. Want to do a view with Year categorized and then Month categorized based on the Creation date of the record. I know there is a way to have the months sorted chronologically and not alpha.  Any help is appreciated.

I had tried doing @Month(@Created) but it keeps giving me the year value and not month.

There may be an error in your view, if you copy/pasted a column: they might have the same internal id (see last tab in the properties). Remove the columns and recreate them, without copying.

Good call on the copying failing. I tried using the code below in the column to have it ordered properly, but it is not displaying as expected. No twistie. Do I need to do this one in some sort of two column setup.

@Select(@Month(@Created);"January";"February";"March";"April";"May";"June";"July";"August";"September";"October";"November";"December")

Did you create the 3 columns Sam mentioned? Year, hidden numerical month, and text month?

Think I am close. Have the year displaying properly. Second column for month is sorted descending. 3rd column is Only displaying December. What is the function for the 3rd column to display the Month properly?
