Hello a03654, A great place to start is, from within Dev Studio: Press F1 and enter "DATE" in the index, follow down to "date and time functions, DATEMOV". You'll find a lot of date functions. But, be sure that the gregorian BOM is the same as you Fiscal BOM...

Since I can't see your date formats, I cant't reply with exact code. I would do the following using the DATEADD function. Despite the name it does subtractions by using a negative number.

Since you have the current accounting month, set up a date field for the first of that month. Then create two previous month date fields. Into one of them subtract one month from your new first of the month field to give you the first of the previous accounting month and into the other subtract one day to give you the last day of the previous month.
