Hi, For this scenario, I would use the [CASE](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/vdp/vql/queries_select_statement/case_clause/case_clause) statement to get the values of months from number to name. **For example**, ``` select <months_field>, CASE WHEN <months_field>=1 THEN 'Jan' WHEN <months_field>=2 THEN 'Feb' ..... ..... END AS months from <view_name>; ``` I could also create a custom function that changes a field to your desired format. You can read more about how to create these *custom functions* in the [“Developing Custom Functions”](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/vdp/developer/developing_extensions/developing_custom_functions/developing_custom_functions) section of the Developer Guide and there are examples of custom functions located at **<DENODO_HOME>/samples/vdp/customFunctions**. Hope this helps!

Thank you for the response, but I was actually look for the different answer, I figured out the solution, may be this may help others `formatdate('MMM',to_timestamp('MM',12))` this will result in "**Dec**" Hope this helps
