Sample workbook attached. Please review Sheet (Post) cell B2:B29. I don't understand why it wont read the proper MONTH() value. Can someone please help explain this? I am referencing the date from the Sheet (In) which must stay this way because it is being used as a bigger part of the picture than is visible here.

It would be nice if life was that simple. I need to provide a digit month code ... 01, 02, 03, etc.

Or, if you want it to remain formatted as "MM", use this...

    =TEXT(A2,"MM")

The problem is in the Text function. Replace "MM" with "00".

I was sure I tried this before but clearly not. I was using TEXT(DATE) or DATE(TEXT) which was not working. This has fixed my issue!

Thank you for the assistance.
