I need a formula that returns the reporting period month. Any date after the 18th of the month will return a reporting period of the following month   Dates If(Day([Date]) <= 18, Case((Month ([Date]))-1, 1,"January",2,"February",3,"March",4,"April",5,"May",6,"June",7,"July",8,"August",9,"September",10,"October",11,"November",12,"December"), Case(Month ([Date]), 1,"January",2,"February",3,"March",4,"April",5,"May",6,"June",7,"July",8,"August",9,"September",10,"October",11,"November",12,"December"))

If the day of the month entered into the [Date] Field is less than or equal to 18, then subtract one from the month of the date field and based on the month number return the matching name of month.

Else if the day of the month entered into the [date] field is greater than 18 then return the month of the [date field], and based on the month number return the matching month name.

Calculate the number of months until a payoff date   Dates ((Year([Payoff Date]) - Year(Today()) )* 12) + (Month([Payoff Date]) - Month(Today()) ) Take this year (that today's date occurs in) and subtract it from the year listed in the Payoff Date field. Then multiply that number of years by 12 (to get months). Take that number of months and add it to the number of months that results from subtracting this month from the month listed in the Payoff date field. Numeric You're really calculating the number of months in two steps. On the left side of the plus sign, you're figuring out how many years until the payoff date and converting that into months. On the right side of the plus sign, you're figuring out the difference in months. The plus sign then adds those figures together.   More on this solution...
Calculate an expiration date Calculate an expiration date based on a contract start date and a period of months. Dates AdjustMonth([Start Contract Date], [Contract Length in Months]) Take the date in the Start Contract Date Field and add the number of months in the Contract Length field.

Create a view that contains records for the "current month" only   Conditional (If - Then) If(Month([Date])=Month(Today()), "Current Month","Not Current Month") If the month in the Date field is the same month as today, then display the text "Current Month" otherwise display the text "Not Current Month. Text Use this formula to create a view. You can feature the text field in the view to see which records say "Current Month." You can also use this custom formula field in the view's criteria. In other words, design the view so that you only see those records that occur in the Current Month. Read more about using custom columns in views here:

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quick Base often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quick Base finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quick Base needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:
