    Hello i have a query which has the following

    placement id date placed
    1 01/01/2006
    2 02/01/2006
    I have the format sett to mmmm-yy so it reads january 06 not 01/01/2006

    when i try to count how many entries are for january i get the following
    results
    month count
    january 1
    january 1

    instead of
    january 2

    In the Field row of your query, enter:
    Format([date placed], "yyyymm")

    That gives you a 6-digit number (4 x year + 2 x month), which will sort
    correctly.

    Alternatively, use 2 fields (i.e. 2 columns of the Field row):
    TheYear: Year([date placed])
    and
    TheMonth: Month([date placed])

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
