I need to create a table where 1 column is a descending date value as follows:
Nov-2012 and so on....
In BO Xir3 this was accomplished with the following:
=ToDate(FormatDate([<a database column>];"mmm-yyyy");"mmm-yyyy")
I cannot get the equivalent to work in BO v4.
Applying the same function call as above produces a list of:
so the incorrect format as I need no leading 01's and a character month.
The statement =FormatDate([<a database column>];"mmm-yyyy")
will produce a character string list of
Nov-2011 A character string version of the date, but the date will be sorted in a non-sensible order.
Applying the ToDate funtion to it to create a recognised Date field creates the incorrect list
BOXIr3 did not require a separate date column to be created and hidden etc the formatting shown above was sufficient
