    How do I change column of different dates (dd-mm-yyyy) into (mmm-yy)?

    Oliver Clarke



      I have a data set from a CRM sales funnel that has project end dates in the full date format.  I want to show these dates clustered into a "MMM-YY" format to make a bar chart in the dashboard.


      I am a novice and not a developer.


      What is an easy way to do this?


      I have highlighted in red text the field that will load the project end dates.




      SET ThousandSep=',';

      SET DecimalSep='.';

      SET MoneyThousandSep=',';

      SET MoneyDecimalSep='.';

      SET MoneyFormat='£#,##0.00;-£#,##0.00';

      SET TimeFormat='hh:mm:ss';

      SET DateFormat='DD/MM/YYYY';

      SET TimestampFormat='DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm:ss[.fff]';

      SET FirstWeekDay=0;

      SET BrokenWeeks=1;

      SET ReferenceDay=0;

      SET FirstMonthOfYear=1;

      SET CollationLocale='en-GB';

      SET CreateSearchIndexOnReload=1;

      SET MonthNames='Jan;Feb;Mar;Apr;May;Jun;Jul;Aug;Sep;Oct;Nov;Dec';

      SET LongMonthNames='January;February;March;April;May;June;July;August;September;October;November;December';

      SET DayNames='Mon;Tue;Wed;Thu;Fri;Sat;Sun';

      SET LongDayNames='Monday;Tuesday;Wednesday;Thursday;Friday;Saturday;Sunday';
