Amend Code

I have some code which im running which i do not fully understand.

My aim is to open a folder, thats always last month, so this month it will open July

On the 1st August, this was correct, but today it is looking for an August folder, therefore debugging as it does not exist

My suspicion is it is due to the line If Day(Date) = 1, can i remove that, is this necessary?

Any time of the month, i always want to search for the previous month

Thanks

    FileYear = Year(Date)

    MonthOffset = 0
If Day(Date) = 1 Then MonthOffset = 1
    FileMonth = Month(Date) - MonthOffset
    FileDate = Format(Date - 1, "yyyymm")
    FilePath = "R:\SPM\Monthly_Inputs\" & FileYear & "\" & FileDate & "\Reporting\PCM_Cross_Region_Lost_Raw.xlsx"

    Workbooks.Open (FilePath)

Open in new window

Try this:
    FileYear = Year(Date)
    FileMonth = Month(DateAdd("m", -1, Date))
    FileDate = Format(Date - 1, "yyyymm")

    FilePath = "R:\SPM\Monthly_Inputs\" & FileYear & "\" & FileDate & "\Reporting\PCM_Cross_Region_Lost_Raw.xlsx"

I used   FileDate = Format(Date - 15, "yyyymm"), that covers me ;-)
