Crystal Reports formlua to narrow scope current month + 2

My report shows open sales orders by month.  Currently it shows any sales orders in the system for any month no matter how far out it is.  Management is particularly interested in the value of open orders for the current month plus the next two months.  I haven't been able to narrow down this scope yet so that it can run automatically.  I know i could accomplish this with a parameter field but that isn't acceptable.  The report needs to dynamically changed based on current month.
if isnull({#January}) then '' else 'January = ' + CStr({#January},0) + 
if isnull({#February})then '' else ' | February = ' + CStr({#February},0) + 
if isnull({#March}) then '' else ' | March = ' + CStr({#March},0) + 
if isnull({#April}) then '' else ' | April = ' + CStr({#April},0) + 
if isnull({#May}) then '' else ' | May = ' + CStr({#May},0) + 
if isnull({#June}) then '' else ' | June = ' + CStr({#June},0) + 
if isnull({#July}) then '' else ' | July = ' + CStr({#July},0) + 
if isnull({#August}) then '' else ' | August = ' + CStr({#August},0) + 
if isnull({#September}) then '' else ' | September = ' + CStr({#September},0) + 
if isnull({#October}) then '' else ' | October = ' + CStr({#October},0) + 
if isnull({#November}) then '' else ' | November = ' + CStr({#November},0) + 
if isnull({#December}) then '' else ' | December = ' + CStr({#December},0)

Thanks very much to both of you.  Both solutions work so I split the points.  Peter your solution worked as it is but only for two months (current and next month) I changed the +2 to +3 and it worked fine.  Both solutions are equally effective but I awarded dougvarga more because he was first and his worked as it was.  Hope that's fair.  Thanks again to both of you!
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
