FORMAT function giving wrong values

Hi,

i'm using format function and giving month number as input, where month number is 1 it is giving December as output.

Any idea what could be going wrong here?

 

Thanks,

Dilkush

Hi Dilkush. What output format are you trying to get? If you want the name of the month, this formula will work: FORMAT([datetime], "mmmm") You don't need the month() function as well. Hope that helps! Will

Can you post your formula?

format(month(date),"mmmm")

 

I also used another way where first i created column which will hold month values and then use

 

format(<column which has month number>,"mmmm")
