This would do it:

format(dateadd("m", -1, now), "mmm yy")

So if you want a Textbox to show that, set the Source to this:

=format(dateadd("m", -1, now), "mmm yy")

Hmmm ... my comment was first, and it formats the Year correctly as "14" instead of "2014", so I'm curious why you chose Pat's answer.

I'm sorry about that.  I had already figured it out by the time either of you had responded.  I was reading the answer on my phone and didn't see your response.  I saw Pat's answer was almost exactly what I did so I accepted it.

Generally you accept the first comment which is correct. I'll ask the Moderators for a review.
