I am trying to print the name of the month using a date on a report.  So if for example the date on the report is 6/20/2014 then I want a field to show "June".

How?

For a lot of my reports, I like to put the month in the reports title, which is a label.

To do so, I use the Report_Open event, something like:

Private Sub Report_Open

    me.lbl_Title.Caption = "Some Report Name (" & Format(date(), "mmmm") & ")"

    'or for month year
    'me.lbl_Title.Caption = "Some Report Name (" & Format(date(), "mmm yy") & ")"

End Sub
