Creating a variable using GetSelectionField

Dear All, I have a month field dimension MONTH_STRING=Date(Date#([Data.autoCalendar.Month],'MMM'),'MMMM') What I would like to do is to create a variable for MONTH_STRING that allows me to select one or more months. I tryied to create a variable using GetSelectionField such as: vMonth=GetFieldSelections((Date(Date#([Data.autoCalendar.Month],'MMM'),'MMMM')),',',12) but it doesn't seam to work. Can you guys please help me understand how can I write a variable for MONTH_STRING that allows me to select one or more than one month? Thanks in advance

GetFieldSelections only uses FieldName... manipulations like Date() and Date#() won't work... may be use Concat instead with GetSelectedCount() to check if selection has been made or not

If(GetSelectedCount([Data.autoCalendar.Month]) > 0,
Concat(DISTINCT Date(Date#([Data.autoCalendar.Month], 'MMM'), 'MMMM'), ',')
)

I don't have data to show you. What I can show you is what I am trying to do with the MONTH_STRING field I have create.

I have insert this is field in a filter panel:
