Hi,

I am struggling to remember how to convert a number in a column (1) to (Jan)

For example in Column A I have a list numbers ranging from 1 to 12 (Jan to Dec) In Column B I want a formula to convert them into "MMM".

Please remind me.

Thanks

Gavin

Here's another one.

Richard, sorry to go off track here. I noticed that you have Excel Jeanie only displaying one formula rather than the formulas for the whole column. Is this a setting within Jeanie or have you just replaced the other formulas with values before posting?
