Hello, I'm trying to get the last day of the month for the prior year 2012 instead of 2013.

Thanks

Example

select * from hsp_bkt_aging_hx

where hsp_bkt_aging_hx.aging_date =  LAST_DAY(ADD_MONTHS(TRUNC(TRUNC(SYSDATE , 'Year')-1 , 'Year'),11))

trunc(sysdate,'yyyy') -1

will return Dec 31 2013


add_months(trunc(sysdate,'yyyy') -1,-12)

will return Dec 31 2012

you could also use

trunc(trunc(sysdate,'yyyy')-1,'yyyy')-1
or
trunc(sysdate,'yyyy') - 1  - interval '1' year

To get the last day of the year before last -
select add_months(trunc(sysdate,'yy') - 1,-12) from dual;
Can you provide a little more description of what you need given different current dates?

Thanks This worked!!


Since this is only an issue in January, How could I code this to look back 2 years only during January and only look back 1 year the after January?

Example

If Month = Jan aging date = last month of 2012 else

LAST_DAY(ADD_MONTHS(TRUNC(TRUNC(SYSDATE , 'Year')-1 , 'Year'),11))  /*2013*/
