I am now wanting to use my new day column to group events as in an agenda, but of course, as it is text, it is not grouping in date order. Is there a way around this? I have sorted in Date order but that is within groupings.

Partially solved - put the Day([Date] first in the Concatenate but won’t be very good at the end of the month.
