Are your months separate columns or, as I assume, rows? Are they strings or date values?

Solution 1

If they're strings, you have to parse out the month and year using the SUBSTRING function. When you do that, you can create a new DateTime variable which can then be used with either the DATEDIFF function (to find the difference between the two dates), or the BETWEEN function (to see if another date falls between the two).
