Eventually got what I wanted by using =TEXT(CG4,"MMM")

Interestingly, this gives a different result from the formatting option. The results look the same, but mine was a formatted date (which will be right-aligned by default) and this is an actual text string (which will be left-aligned). But any further calculations on these values will differ. And they will sort differently: January dates come before February ones, but "Feb" comes before "Jan".

Horses for courses.
