Re: Month function in expressions

Use the date#() function instead of the date() function.

May you live in interesting times!

Re: Month function in expressions

Yup like Onno van Knotsenburg‌ said, may be you need to tell QlikView that this is a date. And you can do that using Date#() function:

Month(Date#(ApId_Dt, 'M/D/YYYY')) as Month
