A little modification in Jeff's code.

SELECT DateName(mm,DATEADD(mm,MonthNumber,-1))


Yep... good call.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

The character conversion will slow things down quite a bit if you happen to use the for batch programming on millions of rows.

[Edit] Ack, thought I had scrolled down all the way, apparently I was wrong.

Since I've posted anyways, might as well mention that doing it this way automatically adjusts for language settings.

set language spanish
select DATENAME(m,DATEADD(m,1,-1))--Enero
select DATENAME(m,DATEADD(m,2,-1))--Febrero
select DATENAME(m,DATEADD(m,3,-1))--Marzo
select DATENAME(m,DATEADD(m,4,-1))--Abril

Similarly if you want to list all the month names for a year using a T-SQL statement, you can do this:

SELECT Number + 1 as [MonthNumber],
DateName(mm,DATEADD(mm,Number,0)) as [MonthName]
FROM master..spt_values
WHERE Type = 'P' and Number < 12

Ummm... I don't get it. How does that deal with the original request of converting month numbers to month names?
