    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

    any ideas please

    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])
