Hi ramlalmeena,

MONTH(serial_number) worksheet function in Microsoft Excel returns the month of a date represented by a serial number. In your formula it should return the month of the date stored in cell D2. For example, if D2 has 02/19/2013, then =MONTH(D2) will return 2 because this date falls in the month of February (2nd month of the year). If there is no value stored in D2, it will return 1 because Microsoft Excel stores dates as sequential serial numbers so they can be used in calculations. By default, January 1, 1900 is serial number 1, and January 1, 2008 is serial number 39448 because it is 39,448 days after January 1, 1900.

Kindly get back if there are any further queries.

Hi ramlalmeena,

If you want to return 0 when cell is empty or contains 0, use this formula:
=IF(OR(D2="",D2=0),0,MONTH(D2))

Best regards,
Trowa
