I have an excel table with an invoice date field. I would like to format this field or another using this field in a MMYY format. The purpose being to create a slicer for columns of data to cross years. example: select 1112; 1212; 0113; 0213 would create a pivot with cumulated data with 4 columns spanning 1112 to 0213. Is this possible?

If it's in date format in the cell, you can create a second column that has the formula:

=Year(A1) & "-" & Month(A1)

Open in new window


You can pull out the "-" if you don't want the hyphen there, and you'll want to replace A1 with the cell you're trying to reformat.
