    Simple formula to display a date (10/19/2013) as text (October 2013)

    Sorry I know this is lame.
    I have a column showing dates like so:

    THANKS!

    Also - do you know how I can make all dates on a column be the same:

    8/31/2013
    8.6.13


    So they are presented the same way instead of one with / and other with .

    One question: the format of your data are fix? Event with "/", "." or "-"?
    I mean: month/day/year, month.day.year or month-day-year ?

    The reason I am asking is that I would like to add a FILTER, and so I need the entire column to be unified.

    Turning all DATES to the same format. Let's say, they all will look like this:

    10/20/2013

    I see your data, the different format only use "." and I assume all format month.day.year
    so use this:

    by the way, for the year, because it's only 2 digit, I assume it's as >=2000

    I forgot, if the column already format as date, you don't need use this formula:

    instead use format cell
    1. go to home, format, format cell... or right click the cell and choose format cell...
    2. in tab number, choose custom, and on field "type:" type "mmmm yyyy" (without quote "")
