02

03

06

07

But I get the error above.  Any help will be appreciated.

Sorry, you are right!  I used a list of numbers 1..12 in my test, forgot to add back in the Month() function. It should have read

 

= RIGHT ( "0" & Month( [Start Date] ), 2 )

Try 

= RIGHT("0" & [Start Date],2)

Why not use a date table with monthNum field as you specify above and relate the date table to your StartDate column?
