Check out the documentation here:

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.0/interactive/functions-formatting.html#FUNCTIONS-FORMATTING-TABLE

Something like
select to_char(date_col,'Month YYYY') from tablename;

might do the trick, if date_col is your column with a timestamp.

> Hi!

> Which function, if any, would help me do this formatting trick? And

> the web page to do this reformatting manually?
