Remarks
Month() is a date conversion function that is useful when you require a numeric month value during calculations for such things as periodic reports. Month() is a member of a group of functions that return components of a date value as numbers.
The group includes Day() and Year() to return the day and year values as numerics.  CMonth() is a related function that allows you to return the name of the month from a date value.
Examples
These examples return the month of the system date:
X#
1? Today()                        // 09/01/90
2? Month(Today())                // 9
3// Advance by 1 month:
4? Month(Today()) + 1            // 10
This example uses month along with Day() and Year():
X#
1?"We are", Year(Today()), "years, ",;
2        Month(Today()), "months, and", Day(Today()),;
3            "days into our history!"
This example shows the result when a  NULL_DATE is passed:
X#
1? Month(NULL_DATE)                // 0
