Re: Extract Month and Year from DateTime field to get MMM-YY

Hi,

 

That should be a DAX formula.  Click on the Data Tab in the black bar on the left hand side and then click on Calculated column formula.  Write this formula in the relevant table

 

=FORMAT([Date 2],"mmmm")

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Extract Month and Year from DateTime field to get MMM-YY

Hi Ashish, BIG Thanks for the help. This worked. 

 

One additional challenge i faced is that resultant measure from formula suggested is set up as "Text" field.  I am not able to sort the chart based on calendar months. 

 

Thanks again for guidance and help !!
