    Hi, before you all tell me how easy this is let me explain.
    I can change the way the dates are displayed but when I create the pivot table it uses the full date value giving me a pivot table column for every day not just every month as desired.
    Can I actually convert the date data without manually going through and adding the month in a new data column?
    Thanks in advance, Olivia
