to query month to date data I  am using  

Between DateAdd("d",-DatePart("d",Date())+1,Date()) And Date()-1

Today being 4/23 it gives me everything between 4/1 and 4/22. Now I need a piece of code that gives me last month month to date if that makes sense, It would need to pull 3/1 to 3/22. As the month progresses it would then of course add the previous day to the queried results like the

Between DateAdd("d",-DatePart("d",Date())+1,Date()) And Date()-1

does for the current month. I am using this for creating compairable time frame sales data. Thanks

>> DateAdd("d",-DatePart("d",Date())+1,Date()) And Date()-1

You are so close! (I'm putting parts of your original statement in bold)


DateAdd("m",-1,DateAdd("d",-DatePart("d",Date())+1,Date())) And DateAdd("m",-1,Date()-1)

(P.S. sorry I cannot test this for syntax errors right now)

If you need this as two columns within a single query, you might use something like:

SELECT
SUM(iif([DateField] >= Dateserial(Year(date()), Month(Date()), 1) AND
              [DateField] < Date(), [Amount], 0)) as ThisMonthToDate,
SUM(iif([DateField] >= Dateserial(Year(date()), Month(Date())-1, 1) AND
              [DateField] < DateSerial(Year(Date()), Month(Date()) - 1, Day(Date()), [Amount], 0)) as LastMonthToDate
From yourTable
WHERE yourTable.[DateField] >= DateSerial(Year(Date()), Month(Date()) - 1, 1)

This would give you the sum of the [Amount] field in YourTable for the two time periods.
You could add columns and group by those columns if you needed, for example the sales by product over the same period in successive periods.

Don't mess with the days:

Between DateSerial(year(Date()), Month(Date()) - 1, 1) And DateAdd("m", -1, Date())
