If you just need the current month displayed, you can do something like add a field to the report containing month(Today) as a datasource.  Is that what you're trying to do, or do you need the date to come from a field in your dataset?

The Fields!Month.Value  is coming from this expression in the MDX query within the dataset;
[Dim Time].[Calendar].[Month].ALLMEMBERS
But instead of Fields!Month.Value  giving me March it gives February.

I found the solution I simply replace Fields!Month.Value with = MonthName(Month(Now())). And it worked. The SSAS was giving me default month in 2011 which was february but by assigning Month(now) into the MonthName function it return current month
