Hi @MojoGene 

As AlB said, if you have a [year] column, then use this formula

#date([year], [MonthNumber], 1)

Hi @MojoGene 

You can for instance add a custom column with this code for the column:

= #date(2020, [MonthNumber], 1)

to create the first day that month in 2020. change as required if you want another year or day

Thanks. That works for 2020. Can hard-coding the year be avoided?

Sure, as I said in the previous post, update the year or day with whatever is required
