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 !!

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

Hello Guys,
The process is quite simple.
Create a New Column as:

Modified Date = FORMAT('table name'[date column], "yyyy mm dd")

This will help you in mapping:

Jan 2019 -> 2019 01 01

Feb 2019 -> 2019 02 01

.

.

Dec 2019 -> 2019 12 01

Now build your visualization and use the sort option to sort it using the Modified Date column in ascending
Hope this helps.
Let me know if you need anything else.
