you could use the dateadd function

ie.  newDate = DateAdd("m",-6,now())

returns a date 6 months ago

so to display the last 6 months (depending on what order you want, just change the loop)

dim i as byte

for i = 6 to 1 step -1
    debug.print "Date as of " & i & " months ago", dateAdd("m",i,now())
next i

sorry, that should be

dateAdd("m",i*-1,now())

or you can just add the negative values in the loop (for i = -6 to -1)
