Converting text into date

Hi all,


I have the field Year and month ...i have concatenated the both and created the field  example :2019-09 


Now i want to convert this in date format and also i want to generate date as well...as it has no date values ,like 1,2,3 ,4//etc.



Can anyone help me in this.

Please generate the Calendar for your field, For now - Simplify using this

Date(Date#(FieldName, 'YYYY-MM'))


=MakeDate(Year(Date#(FieldName, 'YYYY-MM')),Month(Date#('2019-09','YYYY-MM')))

Before develop something, think If placed (The Right information | To the right people | At the Right time | In the Right place | With the Right context)
