VBScript Month Name

Hi Experts,
The following returns the month as a number, e.g. 8 for August


How could I display the month name instead of a number.

Thank you for your help

use the MonthName function() - http://www.w3schools.com/vbscript/func_monthname.asp

<%=MonthName( Request.Form("myMonth") )%>

keep in mind if it's not a valid number, it'll through an error, so you may want to do some error checking:

   monthNum = Request.Form("myMonth")
   if not isNumeric( monthNum ) then 
       monthNum = Month( Now )     '-- default to current month
    elseif monthNum < 1 or monthNum > 12 then
       monthNum = Month( Now )     '-- default to current month
   end if

Response.Write MonthName( monthNum )

It's working fine because I submit from a dropdown where the month numbers are hard coded.
Have fun this weekend!
