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

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.

Your formula in B1 would be =TEXT(DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),A1,1),"MMM")

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?
