Hello readers,

I would like to use the IF function so when cell B2 is empty, cell C2 will stay empty. the formula =MONTH(B2&C2) need to be used when cell B2 is not empty. this to convert text to number in column C


This is the result that I would like to achieve

ABCDE
1MONTH IN TEXTMONTH IN NUMBER
2MAY5
3
4JUNE6

<TBODY>

Thnx in advance

the right formula is
=IF(b2="";"";Month(B2&C2))
