Hi,

I read your last post.

 

Please try like below :-

 

<apex:outputtext value="{!(CASE(left('022013',2),'01','Jan','02','Feb','Invalid'))+right('022013',4)}"/>

 To avoid confusion i have put only Jan & Feb mapping. Please replace the hard coded string '022013' with your variable.

javascript......

send the value to the script and change the notation..some think like below here it is weekdays you need to change this to months..


&lt;script&gt;
function myFunction()
{
var d = new Date();
var weekday=new Array(7);
weekday[0]="Sunday";
weekday[1]="Monday";
weekday[2]="Tuesday";
weekday[3]="Wednesday";
weekday[4]="Thursday";
weekday[5]="Friday";
weekday[6]="Saturday";

var x = document.getElementById("demo");
x.innerHTML=weekday[d.getDay()];//here append the year from your input
}
&lt;/script&gt;

It does not work in my case since i cannot call java script for <apex:outputText> field. I will post my code. can you tell me why it is throwing error.
<apex:outputtext value="{!(TEXT(baWrap.cbsMap[cbs].monthyear__c.substring(0,2)),'1','Jan','2','Feb','3','Mar','4','Apr','5','May','6','Jun','7','Jul','8','Aug','9','Sep','10','Oct','11','Nov','12','Dec','')}">
</apex:outputtext>
