Name Previous 3 months

Hi All,

I was using the following to give me the months names of previous months.


However, this is not a good solution as now its Jan (1)

Is there a built in function I can use to display previous month etc?

Kind regards


PS. This is in classic ASP

You could add 12 and use modulo

Not sure of it

=(MonthName((Month(Now())-2+12) mod 12))%

If you want to get month name of any date, or previous month of given date then, Please try the following:
This Month <%=MonthName(Now().Month)%> <br />
	Previous Month <%=MonthName(Now().AddMonths(-1).Month)%> <br />
	Previous to Previous Month <%=MonthName(Now().AddMonths(-2).Month)%> <br />
