I think there is not a function for that, but you could write one, which would be very simple.
<pre>Private Function MonthNumber(month As String)
Select Case UCase(month)
MonthNumber = 1
MonthNumber = 2
MonthNumber = 3
MonthNumber = 0
If you don’t want to write such a function, you could use the the Month function, which takes a date as a parameter, so you could artificially construct a date with you desired month.
For example, if you want the month number for “Apr”, you use the Month function like this:
<pre>MsgBox Month(“Apr” + “-01-2000″)</pre>
