Hi @Anonymous

You can use AddColumns to add the YearMonth column and then a Filter function to filter by the desired year-month combination.

 

Something like this:

Filter(AddColumns(MyCDSentity, "YearMonth", Text(Year(MyDateField))&"-"&Text(Month(MyDateField), "00")), YearMonth = "2017-03")

Hi again @Anonymous, well done for your clever solution.

In my example I assumed that you stored dates as dates and not as text.

Actually storing dates as text is much better in many situations (especially to avoid time zone related problems), but in that case the best format is not LongDate but "yyyy-mm-dd", which is a worldwide standard. So today would be 2017-03-16 as text.

You can then get the date in any format you want, for example like this:

Text(DateValue("2017-03-16"), DateTimeFormat.LongDate)

This is just a thought.
