How to get Year + Month with Month leading zero

Hi everyone,

 

I have a little trick that I'm using to concat Year & Month with a leading zero for the month and the value still be a number.

 

Just do Year * 100 + Month.

 

Example:

2023 * 100 + 3 

= 202300 + 3 

= 202303

works also when you have months higher than 9:

2023 * 100 + 10
= 202300 + 10
= 202310

 

Have fun with this!

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Thanks for your nice sharing!

And there's another way to get year month number.

YearMonthNumber = VALUE(FORMAT([Date],"YYYYMM"))

If there is only the FORMAT function, it will return the text format, and you can manually modify it to a numeric type, or you can add another VALUE function to convert to a numeric type like me.

Hi,

 

I was wondering what the easiest way is to have the number first. Like 012020 or even something like 01/2020, this is much easier to read.
