derive period from date and column heading


I have 2 files. File 1 is actual transactions in csv. File 2 is excel converted in QV to a crosstable.

File 1 has transaction dates dd-mm-yyyy.

File 2 has period numbers as column headers: 01, 02,03 etc.

when creating a pivot table in QV I get columns such as


Header 1Header 2Header 3Header 4Header 5Header 6Header 7Header 8

Where 01=jan and 02=feb

changing headings in excel to jan, feb etc does not solve my problem

who can help me to solve this issue?
