I have a report that is now failing as it pulls the last month and now in january it is getting stuck. this is my code the code after the FIRST ELSE is causing the issue. Error in CRS is Month must be between 1 and 12.

if {INVITEMS.WRKORDNBR} = 0
    then
    monthname(month({INVOICE.DATE})) + " " + cstr(year({INVOICE.DATE}),0,"") + " - Contract"
    else
    monthname(month({INVOICE.DATE})-1) + " " +  if month({INVOICE.DATE}) -1 = 12
       then  totext(year({INVOICE.DATE})-1,0,"") else totext(year({INVOICE.DATE}),0,"") + " - OOS"

do a seperate else if:

else   if month(({INVOICE.DATE})-1) = 0
      then MonthName (12) + " " +  totext(year({INVOICE.DATE})-1,0,"")
   else
      ' normal logic

Actually since you are first test for the workorder number the test for the month number will come in the else part

if {INVITEMS.WRKORDNBR} = 0  then
    monthname(month({INVOICE.DATE})) + " " + cstr(year({INVOICE.DATE}),0,"") + " - Contract"
else if Month({INVOICE.DATE}) = 1 then
     monthname(12) + " " +  totext(year({INVOICE.DATE})-1,0,"")
Else
    monthname(month({INVOICE.DATE})-1) + " " +  totext(year({INVOICE.DATE}),0,"")

if {INVITEMS.WRKORDNBR} = 0
    then
    monthname(month({INVOICE.DATE})) + " " + cstr(year({INVOICE.DATE}),0,"") + " - Contract"
    else
    monthname(month({INVOICE.DATE})-1) + " " +  if month(({INVOICE.DATE})-1) = 0
      then MonthName (12) + " " +  totext(year({INVOICE.DATE})-1,0,"") else cstr(year({INVOICE.DATE}),0,"") + " - OOS"
