    Format - date is alphabetical (2003)

    I have a date field in a query that I have formatted to Month - it works fine but is displayed on the report as alphabetical instead of Jan-Dec.
    Is there a way to correct it on the report or query?

    If I use the original date field in the query -then format it on the report, it returns a row for every date - even though it is grouped?

    Thanks so much,
    Vicky

    You can use an extra field in the query

    M: Month([DateField])

    and use the Sorting and Grouping window of the report to specify that it should be sorted on this field. M will have values 1 for January, 2 for February, etc., so the sort order will be correct.
