How do I extract the month from a date in SQL?

Laurie Huth December 5, 2022

I need a column that just returns the Month of my Due Date.

Here is what I have so far...

SELECT 'Key',
FORMATWIKI(SUM('Summary')) AS 'The Summary',
FORMATWIKI(SUM('Due')) AS 'Due Date',

(something here) AS 'Month of Due Date'

Hi @Laurie Huth

It would depend on the field type, for instance, if if it is a date/datetime you can use the function: MONTH(date)

Explained better here:

Hopefully this answers your question.

Thank you. I've tried these suggestions. However, the column is created but there is no data (i.e., integers) that appear. It's just empty cells. Not sure what I am doing wrong.

 

Any other suggestions?

Hi @Laurie Huth

Can you share the complete SQL to see if I can catch something in it ?
