I have a list of dates xx/xx/xxxx and I want to format them as xx/xxxx. In other words - lose the day bit and just diplay the month and year.
I feel a bit of a wuss asking as I am not a novice, and I know the answer is under my nose soemwhere.
Help would be appreciated
Thank you

Test for Multiple Conditions in IF?
Use AND(test, test, test, test) or OR(test, test, test, ...) as the logical_test argument of IF.

Can't you just select the dates, goto Format>Cells..., select Custom and enter mm/yyyy?
