Crystal Reports 2008 Formula Question

I have a formula that deperates data by the previous 3 months. It works great except iit does not remove the rest of the data not needed. Can some one tell me what I need to add to it so it disregaursds the rest of the data I do not need.

if {RegisteredMembers.RegisteredTime} in dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate),1) to currentdate then totext(dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate),1),"MMMM yyyy")else
if {RegisteredMembers.RegisteredTime} in dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate)-1,1) to dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate),1)-1 then totext(dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate)-1,1),"MMMM yyyy")else
if {RegisteredMembers.RegisteredTime} in dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate)-2,1) to dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate)-1,1)-1 then totext(dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate)-2,1),"MMMM yyyy")

You'll have to explain some more.  What does "it does not remove the rest of the data not needed" mean?  Give some examples.

if you're using a SQL query to pull your data into the report, you could limit data to only those records that are within the last 3 months by using date criteria in the WHERE clause.

example

....
WHERE RegisteredMembers.RegisteredTime >= DATEADD(MONTH, DATEDIFF(MONTH, 0, CURRENT_TIMESTAMP) - 3, 0)

The formula you are using is simply to use in the report.  You aren't using it to filter the data so you need a filter as suggested above.

oops... also meant to say

if you are not using SQL Query / Command,
you could use a Report Selection formula that limits the records to only those in the last 3 months.

{RegisteredMembers.RegisteredTime} >= dateadd('m',-3,today())

So would I add the string to the formula I posted above?

if {RegisteredMembers.RegisteredTime} in dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate),1) to currentdate then totext(dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate),1),"MMMM yyyy")else
if {RegisteredMembers.RegisteredTime} in dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate)-1,1) to dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate),1)-1 then totext(dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate)-1,1),"MMMM yyyy")else
if {RegisteredMembers.RegisteredTime} in dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate)-2,1) to dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate)-1,1)-1 then totext(dateserial(year(currentdate),month(currentdate)-2,1),"MMMM yyyy") else
if {RegisteredMembers.RegisteredTime} >= dateadd('m',-3,today())

No, you add it to the Record Selection formula.
