Good morning,

I have a report that takes date from Jan 1 to Dec 31 of the year.  From there I would like the data to be represented in the report based on month.

For example:

Jan                         Feb                        March                         April....
summary details    summary details   summary details        Summary details

Can you assist in categorizing the date/time field into months?  Any help would be appreciated!

thank you -
cs
