Month({JAM_DSH_OP_Open__Summary.OrderRel.NeedByDate}) < Month(currentdate)

I have a formula above and would like to know what the results would return.  The data being pulled has multiple years before and after the current month.  

What I am trying to do is get the formula to select anything less than the current month and back including the prior years.   For example.  If today is 2/24/2013  I am wanting to pull everything from 1/31/2013 back.

Just wanting to make sure this will work.

Thanks in Advance

The formula will not do that.
All it does is compare the month number.  So at the moment (Jan 2013 so month=1) It will find nothing because there is no month number less than 1.

To get all data up to the end of the previous month use a selection rule of..

{JAM_DSH_OP_Open__Summary.OrderRel.NeedByDate}) < Dateserial(Year(currentdate),Month(currentdate),0)

The '0'th of any month equates to the last day of the prior month.

If you need too include the last day of the month then change the 0 to a 1 or the < to <=

Ok put that in and understand it  to calculate back the the last day of the prior month and get everything from that day back.  Being new to this I did not realize I could do in one formula.  I have another I woul like checked but will send another post as this satifies the request.
