Function MonthLastDay(mdate As Variant) As Variant
    On Error Resume Next
    Dim thismo, nextmo, thisyr, nextyr As Integer
    Dim mstr As String
    thismo = Month(mdate)
    thisyr = Year(mdate)
    If thismo = 12 Then
        nextmo = 1
        nextyr = thisyr + 1
    Else
        nextmo = thismo + 1
        nextyr = thisyr
    End If
    mstr = Trim(Str(nextmo)) + "/01/" + Trim(Str(nextyr))
    MonthLastDay = DateAdd("d", -1, CDate(mstr))
End Function

To find the LAST day of the current month, use this:
DateAdd("d", -1, DateAdd("m", 1, DateSerial(Year(Now), Month(Now), 1)))
(you may replace Now by the date you want)
