Date questions from new user

I am just starting out with Qlikview.  I have some transaction data with dates assigned to each transaction in M/D/YYYY format that load fine.  I want to create graphs of the transactions and select specific months and years to group the transactions (Jan 2011, Feb 2011, Mar 2011, etc.)  How do I do this?  I have a list box for the dates but it shows every individual date by day and that is what also shows on the graph.  Many, many bars.

I am happy to read a tutorial or watch a video but I can't find anything that tells how to do this.  Examples attached.

Thanks for any and all help!!

Thanks for your suggestion.  It did display the dates nicely but I could not get the graph to display the dates in the proper order. It appeared Qlikview did not recognize the months as numerics but rather as text.  I was able to get it to work by using the following:

Monthname (Date) as MonthYear

Thanks for your help, though.  I don't think I would have figured it out without your idea first.

Hi,

You can use this in the script

Month(Date) & '-' & Year(Date) as MonthYear

Then use this on your graph.

Since I am using the personal version, I was not able to open your document.  I did figure out a solution, however.  Thanks for your help.
